luna top, sewing pattern

One Sunday morning, I woke up with this crazy idea about making a garment with 3 holes. I told John about it and he gave me a puzzled look. So, without a moment wasted, I got out of bed  and went to the other room to find a suitable piece of fabric. This dress top is made with a crepe georgette, a light weight material that drapes beautifully.

It took me a few hours to finished sewing the garment, and also had time to eco-print it with leaves and dyed with indigo. Another idea came to mind, why not create a sewing pattern with instructions and sell it on Etsy. It took me another week to put together the instructions and illustration of the sewing pattern. If you like a version of this to make for yourself, please contact me.
