Fibre Mood Oversized Frances Top my version

The download was almost two months on my laptop. My fabric stash is very limited now so time to do some fabric shopping first. This viscose dark blue fabric with a cute elephant print caught my eye. Perfect to wear on a regulair blue jeans but also on red jeans. I drafted the pattern between XS and S. My front hem is also slightly curved at the front. I used the neckline from the pattern but wanted to give it feature.

So I created a V-shaped slit at the back with a small tab closure. This little alteration let to self drafted facings for the neckline. Starting after breakfast my Fibre Mood Oversized Frances Top was by lunchtime ready to wear.

My experience with the Fibre Mood Oversized Frances Top

The Frances Top is a great example of a cute fashionable Top that it’s easy to make. It’s a very versatile pattern that invites you to make alterations. You can easily turn this into a great Summer dress by lengthening this Top. The neckline can be altered and also the shape of the hem.

Because there’s hardly a difference between the front and back so you wear the back as front. So as you can see my designed V-shaped slit is a great feature at the back but also looks great at the front.

  1. The neck feature is gorgeous, but I also love those sleeves. I can imagine that this top will be in constant rotation. I doubt that this magazine will come to my part of the world but will keep an eye out for it.

    • Thank you so much for your kind comment Sue. This Top will be worn during weekends and holidays. Although Fibre Mood has also a few selling points all over the world Australia doesn’t seems to have one unfortunately.
