Hey guy! I’m blogging on my phone. So, I made this top a long time ago but I haven’t had time to post it. It’s meant to be a formal wear, a work or office wear. The first time i wore it, i styled it with a jacket (black) and a skirt (black)

The pictures i took in my work place didn’t show the bottom details of the top. For the purpose of this tutorial, i took pictures of the top wearing a jeans, so that you can all see the datailing. It an assymmetric cut.

I used an off white fabric because of the nature of my work, the stretch on the fabric is not sufficient enough. You can add a sleeve to it if you want to or style it with a black jacket.

Place the open and close zipper at the back of the top (you can use a needle and a contrasting color thread to sew the zipper on the top for an easy sew)
