Mrs Doo liked a latex top that she spotted on TV and she identified it as the ‘Garbo’ blouse by Syren. Could I make her something similar she asked?
It seems that this Syren top is somewhat of an icon.
Here is the my interpretation…
In my version the blouse is actually a body, and has a keyhole at the back rather than a zip.
I also created a matching skirt, using 6 panels so that the seams would follow on from the blouse, making it look like a dress rather than top and skirt.
I’ve created a walkthrough of the build for the top and skirt.
I created the pattern using Seamly 2D, using the method from ‘The Practical Guide To Patternmaking For Fashion Designers: Juniors, Misses, And Women‘ for the bodice and briefs from ‘Lingerie Design – A Complete Course‘ for the lower part, merging these patterns in a drawing tool. I still need to refine the pattern before I can share it, so that it doesn’t need any steps to be done in a drawing tool.
The Bishop sleeve was based on the image I found in Pinterest:
