thank you so much for this hack!
I'm just sewing the dress; I wanted to make the top afterwards....and I just watched your video!
The fabric recommended for the Haut Vol top is identical to that of the Haut Vol dress, which you can find on its product page.
Have a nice day!
Unfortunately the Haut Vol armhole doesn't allow for a fitted sleeve as it is, but if you know how to rework armholes why not ;)
I just bought the pattern to make the top!
What fabrics do you recommend to make it (material and weight)?
Bonjour, superbe hack, toujours aussi chic.
Is it possible to adapt small sleeves on the high flight top please?
Many thanks in advance!
Have a nice day!
Hi Sandrine, as the top is a hack, a transformation of the dress, it's perfect that you have your pattern, as it will be essential for making the top. Don't hesitate to watch the video, it explains everything. have a nice day!
bonjour Aphélie, the mid-back seam is not compulsory. Put the piece in the fold, removing the 1 cm seam allowance along the middle back line if you prefer. Have a nice day!
Do we have to make a seam in the middle of the back?
Beautiful, awesome tuto! I had not imagined the design of this top which really caught my eye. Thank you, thank you very much
