I have been sewing, but not blogging. So, I decided to take some time here – especially since I am not going into the ‘office’ today and highlight one item I have sewn.
This is an OOP pattern that I picked up in my Tailoring Class. Periodically students will donate sewing related items (mostly patterns and fabric) that they no longer want or need. Of course, I love OOP patterns from the ‘80’s so I snatch this one up. OMG! I used to wear my hair just like that.
This it my completed top. I used silk kimono pieces from Ah! Kimono. I sewed the kimono pieces together in large sections then cut the pattern pieces from these sections.
I used French seams to sew it all together. After I finished I decided the top was too short – so I added a border on the bottom. Really simple and really easy, too. I may have enough silk pieces to make another top.
However, I think I would rather move on and sew up something else.
