Recently my sister and I have been obsessing and reminiscing over ballet – me watching ballet videos on Youtube and my sister actually attending ballet classes – so this simple top seemed like a perfect way to use up some fabric remnants.
It really is the simplest top. I found an old copy of Burdastyle magazine around, had a quick read and found a top I don’t remember seeing before. The back is actually the same as the front – the version in the magazine was too fussy and I wanted a project that would take me no longer than an hour.
It’s a simple V neck shape although not as tidy as it should be since I don’t own an overlocker, which would have helped massively with the stretchiness of the fabric.
But it’s not a bad job considering it was fabric that was given to me and a quick make. Plus, I gave it to my sister (my harshest critic) and she did wear it to ballet this week so that’s something.
As for the ballet, I do intend on starting an actual class soon. Things, as always, seem to be getting in the way and I am the world’s worst procrastinator, but I fully intend on joining my local class soon. Have any of you tried adult ballet? Is it any good? Is it fun?
