Metalicus knock-off polo bodycon top


I LOVE Metalicus, their easy to wear styles and fabrics, but it's generally out of my price range. The answer...make a knock-off of course!
I found this picture of a figure hugging polo top and drafted a pattern in about 20 minutes by copying a top of mine that had the right fit. The neck was a bit of a challenge and took me a couple of attempts. It's still not quite right, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

I used some stretch velour fabric in cream that I'd bought at the op shop (thrift shop) for $3. Not bad considering the original version cost $180!!

We wandered down to the river this morning to take some pics (thanks hubby). That's Perth city in the background. I love this spot. I was warm in my top, despite the cool and windy winter weather!

Please let me know if you are interested in the pattern. If people are keen I might draft it up properly with some instructions. I'd love some comments and blog followers. Meg xxx
