I had a quick look through a few of my (far too many) bags of fabric and found some sheer black polka dot fabric. I had loads of the fabric left so originally I must have bought a ridiculous amount of it, especially considering I have made at least two tops out of it already. I used this fabric way back in 2010 to make a polo necked top. Turns out that was the first Burda magazine pattern I ever used. It's really funny and eye opening reading back through my blog from that year. How different my life was. How differently I saw the world. That year I wrote 78 (!) blog posts. A few more than last year's two posts...
Anyway, I loved that top soooo much. It got worn completely to death. The fabric was pretty delicate and susceptible to snags and then in 2013 it became an amputee and not long after that finally died. I'm actually surprised it lasted that long.
Since it was such a favourite I thought why not just remake that exact top.

Actually I've never sewn anything on that machine because I can't figure out how to thread it or where the leather belt thing is meant to go.
This is not me. My annoying front camera automatically goes first to this crazy "beauty" mode. Bigger, whiter eyes, narrower face, clearer skin. I think it whitens skin too, negating all my fake tan! Asian phone, Asian beauty standards :)
