vespa top

Well here is the original 60's vespa top (left) and my version (stayed up most of the night making it)...The original is  made from a stretchy nylon fabric in a much nicer colour than this photo indicates, my version is made from a knitted fabric with a fair isle stripe.  The long funnel neck pulls up as a hood which is so snug! and it has 3/4 length sleeves which for me is the prefect length! I love this top! and so simple to make I think it might be nice batwinged too!!or without the neck/hood, though for me that is the beauty in this garment.  The owner of the original emailed me today to say "if only the top could talk"...ooh la la!!
