Brasov Wrap Top - Dalmation

Itch to Stitch Brasov Wrap top - Photos in Reading, we went on a walk with a picnic of fresh fruit and dairyfree Baileys! Skirt made last year in March (Arielle).
Cotton jersey from Fabric Land - white with black dalmation print. I was interested in this pattern on its release as it looks like the lycra long sleeved tops I used to wear at uni but I didn't have any fabric for it until I saw this tiny print, it's more interesting than sewing a plain white top - which is always something I want to wear!
This wrap top pattern is modest to wear even without a vest, I wore a vest with mine because it is thin white cotton. I cut the sleeves on the 'shorten/lengthen' line which was grand for a half sleeve. I prefer the shorter sleeves at least in a print and the side pleating and shoulder pleats are delicate in this lighter fabric. I was interested to try new techniques after sewing the Nottingham Knot Top and I am delighted with how chic a tshirt can look.
Mime pendant is Miss J Designs - I love wearing this one as it packs a punch and the long weighty pendant looks great with a V neck. Little black-gold glitter shooting hearts are Tatty Devine.
