Anthro Nautical Inspired Top


As promised here's the top I made that goes with the shoes... Yet another Anthro inspired piece to add to my wardrobe.. I've made this using Ali's tutorial over at Ali Foster Patterns as my base idea but made mine with a pleated ruffle instead of her randomly folded ruffle.. don't know why but it just looked better on me when I tried it on pinned before I sewed the ruffle on.

I love it so much.. I'm thinking perhaps a white version may also be necessary now too, especially as the weather has certainly picked up this last week in the UK! Not bad considering it was just a cheap, plain tanktop from Dorothy Perkins a week ago!



And here it is in an outfit with the shoes, just makes me happy looking how great the whole outfit has come together :)

(just excuse the clothes he left on the floor in our walk-in wardrobe lol)
