Creative Space: Neon Top

Remember this fabric I screenprinted in my Atomic flower design? 
Well, I found some neon jersey and held them up together. My eldest daughter 
said she'd love a top in those fabrics so I started making... and this is the result.

I'm really loving the neon at the moment.
I didn't use a pattern. I just made it up as I went along and tweeked here and there.
It looks gorgeous on her. She says she loves it and I can't wait to see her wear it out...
We don't force these things on a teenager though, do we ;)

  8. I love this so much. I can't believe you didn't use a pattern to make that stunning top. And the fabric - well I'm so inspired by your fabric printing. Would love to hang out for a day and do some fabric making together one time..... I hope my girl will love to wear the things I make when she's a teenager. She's 5 now and does enjoy mama made pieces.
