Splatter top

Despite best intentions I'm guilty of 'random sewing'.  

I have on my sewing table two nearly done muslins - a trouser block and a jacket block; and two dresses in various stages of completion.  I rushed to finish this simple top for my niece's engagement party and am quite happy with it.  The fabric is a polyester pretending to be silk bought an aeon ago at The Fabric Store.  The pattern is Vogue 8833, an easy to make wrap top with a long tie belt that wraps right around the waist. I made the version with the mandarin style collar. I will adjust the pattern if I make another so that I don't need the singlet underneath.  The gape factor was too much for me.  Despite this, I quite like it!  Happy sewing.
