One Metre Tied Top

Is there anything more satisfying than squeezing an item of clothing out of a metre or less of fabric? When the wonderful people at The Craft Cotton team asked if anyone wanted to try some of their new jersey samples I couldn't resist. I have far too much on and it wasn't a lot of fabric to work with but this cherry print was just too good to let go.

I have done a short vlog on how I made it using a top that I already had as a template.

The top is made of just front, back and the ties. You could include the ties in the front panel with a larger piece of fabric but I think I actually prefer it this way anyway, it is much more satisfying using up more of the fabric.
