More Recycling


I have lost count how many versions of New Look 6648 I have made but this is my second version of this view.  I am not sure whether that counts as recycling but the fabric definitely is.  I bought this tie dye stretch lace as part of my op shop haul I wrote about here.  I have been sitting on it for a long time because I loved the colours and knew I wanted to do something with it I would love.  I have seen a lot of lace tops around this season but none that sparked my imagination.  I only had about a metre so my options were quite limited.  I really like the Desigual inspired print I made into this style earlier in the season so it was an easy choice.  This time however, I made the top 5cm longer as I find it sits a little too high on my hips and sometimes I just want a longer top.  I also added bands to the armholes and the back of the neck, like I did with my previous version.  Like in all the previous tops I added elastic to gather the waist band rather than gathering it as per the instructions. 

This top is super quick and easy to make especially given I have made so many and therefore a great easy option when I have a house full of kids home on summer holidays.

  1. It's a really pretty top and the pattern looks really versatile.
