spring break: disco, baby

I bought this sequinned applique back in December, from MaryNotMartha's etsy shop, whose lovely trims all seem to go for a song. (check 'em out!) Anyhow, I had this bit of rayon knit tucked away in pale lavender and as it seemed to be a colour that was all over the spring runways, I thought, hey, why not?
So I modified an easy vogue pattern for a top with an uneven handkerchief hem, because I love this look, but I'm not sure it's flattering enough to my hips to justify spending any sort of cash on a drapey top like this in a store. I whipped up the top all the way back in December. It just took me this long to finally finish hand-stitching the applique. Whew! Can't wait to wear it; maybe for the first day back to school!
