Easy (I swear!) batwing top

Batwing dress and top made by Amanda Healey

I saw an orange batwing top over a year ago on Etsy and pinned it to my ever growing clothing I could make myself board. I bought the fabric to make it closer to the time I pinned it, but only recently found the time to make it. It’s super comfortable and can be worn a a mini dress, folded up for a shirt, and I may have slept in it more than once as well. I think it helps that it’s a high quality bamboo fabric.

Not too long after I happened to be at a Our Social Fabric sale and picked up a remnant of black with mustard fleck. It wasn’t home nearly as long as the orange was before it was cut and waiting on the sew pile for a rainy day. Luckily summer’s coming to an end and rainy days are more frequent.

I can’t take all of the credit for the creation on this one though. I found a simple DIY pattern on the Morning by Morning Productions¬†blog and with a few mods to measurements ended up with what you see above.
