Flower Petal Top (Challenge Create: Adult Edition week 1)

This week's theme for Challenge Create: Adult Edition is "Nature Inspired", and I was inspired by all the colorful spring flowers that have begun to grow during the past few weeks.

For my Flower Petal Top I used my favourite shirt pattern from Ottobre 2/2007, adding a scalloped hem to mimic flower petals and a Peter Pan style collar to go with the overall style of the top. A tutorial from The Coletterie was helpful when I tried to figure out how to make the scallops. 

The fabric is a bright turquoise/petrol jersey knit, probably a cotton/lycra blend (but I'm not sure since I bought it from a thrift store a while ago). I've been thinking of using it for making a shirt that's a little fancier than the plain shirts I usually make, so this was a perfect project! 

Summary in Swedish: Det här är mitt bidrag till veckans tema "Nature Inspired" i tävlingen Challenge Create: Adult Edition. Som synes inspirerades jag av alla fina vårblommor som växer så här års. Jag använde mitt favorittröjmönster från Ottobre 2/2007, och hittade en beskrivning på hur man kan sy en vågig fåll som i det här fallet skulle symbolisera blomblad. Tyget är köpt på second hand och jag har tänkt att jag skulle använda det till att göra en lite "finare" och mer arbetad tröja än dem jag vanligtvis syr, så det här var ett perfekt projekt!
