Retro Lace Crop Top. This top was originally just a muslin project for my class. The bias tape makes it wearable and classic. These type of fabrics fray a lot. I use bias tape as a substitute for serging. The lace detail was added to make the top into a bigger size. I wanted to do this top for my first fashion show. I found someone who could wear it but they ended up not doing the show. The stylish detail just made the top bigger enough to fit different shapes of girls. Unfortunately, I didn't do this piece for the show. I think this top looks great on a size 12. It could possibly look even better on a size 14. I imagine it being on someone tall with a long torso. I'm open to selling this top. I don't have the exact measurements just yet but I'll get them later in my next post.

 I don't feel I looked into much inspiration for this top. I used the things that I personally love. I like using a lot of lace, pearls, & tulle. The top came out very classy & chic. It's a perfect top for a special event or date. I think it can be worn casually too.
