Remember that almost all clothing made around the millennium seemed to have drawstrings incorporated somewhere? On the cuff of sleeves, on the bottom of trousers, around the waist, around the neck, even just randomly and functionless accross the back. Haven't seen them around in a while and kind of miss the wrongness about them, so I made this scuba drawstring top.

/01 Cut a triangle that will fit around your torso.
/02 Make a hem of a little more than a cm in width on the top and bottom of the triangle.
/03 Make two darts on the side to give the top more shape. If you don't want to make darts, use a stretchier fabric so it won't be necessary.
/04 Make a small hem on both of the sides of the top.
/05 Put a piece of elastic through the top hem. It will take a bit of picking, but with some tweezers you'll get it through eventually. Tie a knot in it and slide the knot inside the hem to make it invisible.
/06 The bottom elastic doesn't go through the hem, because it has to pull the two corners together, so sew the ends of the elastic to the corners.
/07 Add both of the stoppers to the elastics and it's ready to be worn!

need:
Fabric (I used neoprene)
elastic
2 stoppers

This is gorgeous! And so easy to make. I love how you've incorporated drawstrings into it too - you have a knack for making the most ordinary things completely desirable!

Alice said...

So much nostalgia is hitting me right now. Seeing that drawstring definitely takes me back to the years of drawstring jackets, drawstring pants, and drawstring everything in between!
This top is too cute! I love that you updated the drawstring and made it more interesting by pairing it with neoprene. A top like this would be so cool, I would just be worried about showing all that back :)

BITCOIN, BINARY OPTION: i am one of the Victims. At first, the software seemed to be really professional and authentic. I found many favorable reviews about its performance and delivered results. So, I decided to invest in it and try to achieve success in the online trading sphere. Soon, I realized that the software was swallowing all my investments. Brokers are nothing more than a dangerous and fraudulent platform. I invested over $ 140,000 and couldn't withdraw my money, months passed and still nothing. So, God so kind I followed a broadcast that teaches on how scammed victims can recover their funds. I contacted the email provided for consultation,   I got feedback after some hours and I was asked to provide all legal details concerning my investment, I did exactly what they instructed me to do without delay,  to my greatest surprise, I have been able to recover $ 100,000 and the remaining $ 40,000 is in progress. I really can't tell how happy I am. I said I will not hold this to myself but share it to the public so that all scammed victims can get their funds back, you can as well hire him today by Email: ( info@wizardcharlesgrouphackers.com  )
