So back in the Spring, I made an open back top that I absolutely fell in love with. I loved it so much, that I wanted to make something similar to transition into the Fall. So. I drafted a pattern out of a top that I already owned and came up with this Origami top. I vlogged my entire process for a video that I will later post. It’s going to be titled “Behind the Scenes of a DIY Fashion Blogger”. I wanted to show you my creative process, and you’ll see me drafting patterns and coming up with ideas for my blog and YouTube, but more info will come out once the video is out which will be in a few weeks. I’ve been doing quite well with the consistency of my videos. I have a video set for every week as of lately, so be sure to subscribe to my channel if you haven’t yet.
Enough with the side rambling. So like I said, I drafted the pattern to make this top, but I will show you in how to make it with a pattern in a future tutorial which will be released in a bout 2 weeks. (Mark your calendars) This is a loose fitting top. I love the peek of skin on the lower back because it’s just enough. If you are not a fan of showing skin at all, you can easily make this top a bit longer to where the cutout hits your bottom.
The fabric that I chose for this top is a sateen. It has a small amount of stretch and it has a nice, satiny finish. For this top, you don’t necessarily need any stretch. You can make this top with 100% cotton if you like because of the open back, it allows for a lot of movement without the wrinkles.
