Quick Japanese top

Hey there! I know I said I wouldn't have time to sew for myself but I actually made this tunic a few days ago and couldn't finish it because I ran out of thread just when I only had the hem left to sew! I got to buying said thread today and here's the result:


The tunic is super easy to make since the front and back top and sleeves are cut in a single piece, there's no shoulder seam! You simply gather 2 rectangles of fabric and attach them to this piece and there you have your top :) I got very inspired by 2 great garments made by Ophelia for the simple design of this tunic and used mustard cotton veil, the colour is slightly darker in reality. I'm also wearing a brooch that I made last year, a little bird made of purple felt^^.


See you!

  3. Very cute! Every time I see one of your creations I tell myself I really must get into Japanese sewing patterns. I know you've probably talked about this elsewhere on your blog, but are they easy to follow if you can't read Japanese?!

  6. Thank you ladies! Tilly I must say I have NEVER read any instructions when it comes to Japanese patterns! There are pictures and numbers to tell you in what order you should complete the sewing steps and that's it :) I'm so making a post on that again soon, I have interesting link about it! Merry Christmas to you all, hope Santa will bring you everything you've wished for^^!
