This was a 5 hour project and used grey fabric from my stash, black translucent knit, as well as the bottom half of a black knit top that was left over from a refashion
It all started with finding fabric in my stash.
There should be 4 pieces.
Connect the (2 front and 1 back) pieces by lining up the sleeves and underarm seams. Sew.
I tried it on and found the underarm area to be too baggy. To remedy the situation, I cut the sleeves off and created two darts from arm hole to bust. Unfortunately I don’t have pictures for these few steps.
I then cut the arm hole side of the sleeves at an angle. Gathered the arm hole at the top and pinned it to the bodice.
It fit a whole lot better now and looked like a bolero with a longer front than back. I attached the leftover black knit fabric to the bottom and then stitched.
I added a translucent black panel made out of a stretchy fabric folded in half to increase the opacity. I should have added this before the bottom. Lesson learned.
Anyway, the top looks like it is a two piece – jacket and black top.
