A summer trend: off the shoulder

Monday, May 23, 2016







I've been seeing a lot of off-the-shoulder tops and dresses lately and I have to say I'm really loving this trend! I love wearing tops with a wide neckline or ones where the neckline dips lower in the back. I find them super flattering on. So the other day I decided to draft my own blouse and see how I like it. I think I want to make a few tweaks to the pattern, perhaps make one that isn't so "blousy," and one that buttons up the front as well. But I think this top will be really nice and cool to wear in the summer. Let me know if anyone would be interested in a pattern like this. I might throw it together as a quick PDF download (although I do have another top pattern in the works that is just about ready)! xo

  2. This is so cute! I too love the off-the-shoulder trend (just wish it would warm up here in Germany so we could wear summery stuff!). And would be great even lengthened into a mini dress too... Would be so amazing if you released a pattern. ;)
