Asymmetrical Summer Top

      I realize this style probably will only appeal to a few, but I really like stuff that has a bit of uniqueness about it. (That's half the fun of sewing your own stuff right?!) I had some scrap left over from making these skirts, so I used it to try out an idea I've had in my head for a while. I cut out a half tank top, half circle top and it looked like this laying flat.

      You want to sew the dotted red line on the RIGHT side of the shirt first. Then you flip it wrong side out, and sew up the other side, just as you would any other shirt. It really is super simple. Here are few other similar versions I found around.

Shopbop $76.50

Forever 21 $15.80

Robert Rodriguez Colorblock One-Sleeve Blouse
Neimen Marcus $171.00
      Anyway, its a fun variation of a plain tank top. I liked it so much, I'll probably do more to put in my shop.

       What do you think, is unique your thing or do you like to stick to basic styles?

Isaiah 40:28   Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary?there is no searching of his understanding.


  1. Great colour and it fits you perfectly! Not sure I could pull off this style but it looks great on you. If you're looking for a new place to share you sewing projects, come check out "Etcetorize. Party is still on and we'd love to see you there!

  2. I absolutely love this! I would definitely wear this. It is so on trend. I'm sure the younger 20 something ladies would so love this too. As a matter of fact, think I will try making one for myself and my 20 year old daughter. (Out of different material of course. What young girl wants a shirt exactly like their mother's? Lol.)
