Petal Top Tutorial

5.7.12


I've been intrigued by the many petal tops and dresses I have been seeing lately, and decided it was time to get in on the trend.  In keeping with my typical design aesthetic of simplicity, the petal influence is quite subtle, but still effective, I think.  I won't be giving many specific measurements, since this it will be very easy to size this to whomever you choose to make this for.  And feel free to add some length if you want to make this a dress.  Anja has enough dresses, so I wanted this to be a long top 
(have you noticed I make a lot of those!?).  

So, here it is, the Petal Top Tutorial:







Make your straps using this tutorial.



Turn your bodice right side out, and iron well.
