The vintage Liberty fabric for this Janet top was passed on to me by a friend who'd treasured it for many years and wanted to see it turned into something at last! There was only enough to make up the one garment (size ten), so it is very much a one off. Whilst cutting the fabric and sewing, it put me in mind of something nautical - flags at sea, perhaps? The Janet top is all about adorning oneself in glorious print, with tiny clover shaped mother-of-pearl buttons fastening at the back, so as to not break up the pattern. Loose, three quarter length sleeves are hand sewn at the cuff edge as is the hem, the buttons and the inner sleeve binding.
