Shiny square top

Found 5 year old shiny fabric in my stash and decided to make a square top with it. It’s really thin yet opaque material – shiny on one side and black on the other. I don’t know what it’s called. Do you? It looks like black plastic trash bags but I can assure you that it’s not. :p

Anyway, instead of a true square, I used a rectangle so that it wouldn’t be too short on my torso. Pleated the center front and back pieces – one inwards, and the other outwards.

Finished the sleeves and added little loops to the shoulders and matching buttons on the loops. This will be useful for holding down scarves so they don’t go askew as I move in the outfit. As usual, this top is front-back reversible, depending on which pleat I want in front.

Imagine the top tucked into a skirt or pair of pants.

Time to wash and iron again. 🙂
