Banksia top

Thursday, October 25, 2012


So I finally finished my Banksia top and I'm very satisfied with the final result.When started planning this project I had a very specific idea in my mind.I wanted a fabric with a kind of preppy print and a pointed collar that would break the sweetness of the print and creating a contrasting effect.I was searching for the right fabric,but nothing seemed to do.And then I spotted this scarf at Bershka that was big enough for the pattern.
But I have to confess that wasn't the best idea!The fabric was a nightmare to work with,very slippery and once I sewed a stitch,there was never a turn back,because of the holes that were left on the fabric whenever I tried to unpick a seam.But in the end I'm really happy I managed to finish a wearable garment!For the collar I used faux leather and I changed the shape of the original(a peter pan collar) to a pointed one.

So what do you guys think?
