Before I started creating my own clothes, I had no clue textiles had so many variations. Let me be honest, when I heard someone mention a seersucker suit I thought seersucker was a brand. Little did I know, it was one of my favorite warm weather fabrics every created. If you’re not familiar with seersucker, it’s a lightweight fabric more often in a stripe that has a puckered textured. Not sure if you get the gist, but trust me when I say it’s classic sophisticated and very versatile.
This wrap top was made using this red and white regatta seersucker from moodfabric.com that’s lightweight, very comfortable, easy to sew and cut and a summertime must have. If you have another color in mind, don’t worry here is a great assortment from moodfabrics.com to get you started.
