So I have this old Gap top from oh… early college… maybe high school… I love it. It’s lightweight and it has a fun print and it goes with both my pink pants and my maroon pants. But there’s one problem… its predominately cream colored. Normally that’s not a problem. But for the duration of twin nursing… it’s a problem. (Seriously, can the designers of nursing bras make one bra that doesn’t have polka dots that will fit me?! I get it… they’re trying to make these functional bras hip and cool and what not. But what we really want is a seamless nude colored bra with maybe a touch of lace. Are you listening nursing bra companies that make bras in my size? )
So since this top was one of my spring and summer staples and I wasn’t in the mood to trace out a pattern from Ottobre like I had wanted (nor did I have the time during naps), I based my last Spring Top design off of this top.
It’s a simple 3 piece design. A front and a back and a waistband.
I love the wide neckline, the ruched waistband, and the split sleeves. But in the solid color rather than the cream and pale pink print of the original, the shirt looked pretty boring. So I added some hand-stitched daisies to give it a little more Anthropologie style.
