Simple DIY: Free Delicate Vintage Top Pattern

Free Delicate Vintage Top Pattern

This free delicate top comes from November 1st 1951 issue of Australian Home Journal! The original pattern was intended for making a boudoir jacket. The pattern was recreated using light sheer fabric and lace trimming to create a delicate alternative to a cardigan during hot summer days. 

This open-front garment could be worn over a tank top and paired with jeans. It’s also a wonderful beach cover up piece. If you choose to use sequined or beaded fabric for this DIY project, you’ll be adding a perfect evening dress shrug to your current wardrobe. Depending on your sewing skills and fabric the project could be completed in 1.5-3 hours. Not expensive to make as you need only 1 1/4 yards of 36 inch material.
