Red gingham 40's style top by rascalkosher Red gingham 40's style top by rascalkosher
I made this sun top from a pattern dated 1944.
I used red gingham fabric and two red buttons from 1930's.
I really like the way it turned out and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.
Not bad for being my first try.

And please don't mind my ink, it's work in progress and the roses won't be there for much longer...

This is WONDERFUL!! I am such a fan of vintage 1940s stuff, and you pulled it off so fabulously with that rockabilly-edge from the tattoos(:

I just have a question, though, since I've been sitting here quite confused for about five minutes, just staring at the photo. I don't understand how the knot in front works without pulling the cups all oddly! Perhaps you can give my mind a rest? ^_^

Beautiful work! I have a top with the exact same pattern. :)
I love tattoos. May I ask what will happen to the inked roses?

Hopefully the back piece will be covered up and colored very soon. I've waited for over 4 years to get it done.

The irony of combining the '40's look with the tattoos is overwhelming. High five!
