The Seersucker and Lace Top

So, you remember the seersucker fabric I bought for $1 last week? There was less than a metre in the piece which was a big restriction on what could be made but I'm happy with the outcome.

I used the Simplicity No 6410 (again) as a base pattern and added the gathered peplum.

A hand-stitched loop and button provide the neck closure. There was not enough fabric for facings so I made up a half lining in white lawn.

The trimmings came from my vintage button collection and the lace box.

Now I'm waiting for summer in Australia so I can wear it!
