I am studying.
My own summer sewn top
simple, wide and comfy, biassed crisp finishing.
for on jeans or footless tights or maxi skirt or slip or...
there was 'grid'(Alexander Henry cotton) : batsleeves, deep round neck, flip-over-waist-band
and there is 'la chartreuse' (crinkly wrinkly linen) : same sleeves, same neck, darts and insert waistband
now 'Trombi' (a Marimekko fabric) : same sleeves, rounded boat neck, long shirt (no waist shaping).
This Trombi is definitely too big (somehow the Marimekko cotton falls much wider) and needs a bit of a crop I think... But the journey is the destination. Making is great fun.
Oh and, this is simply breathtaking : Issey AW 2011, sigh, patternmaking a thousand beautiful steps further...
