Another Reader’s Summer Drape Top

Patricia has been writing to me recently about the Summer Drape Top. She was keen to make it for her Daughter in Law who is expecting a baby, as part of her maternity wardrobe. We decided to keep the top and armholes the same, and angle out the bottom a little to give some ‘room for expansion’. And this is the pretty result – her daughter in law looks delighted with her new top and I think I would be too.

Patricia sews her daughter in law the summer drape top for her pregnancy.

As we’ve been chatting all about sewing, I’ve also been learning about Patricia’s interesting history – she was born in the cupboard under the stairs in Liverpool during an air-raid, one of 12 children!

Thanks so much for sharing this lovely photo.
