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.
