Me-Made-March Day thirty

Hello, how are you today? For this penultimate (Chouchou, ça veut dire l'avant-dernier^^) day of the Me-Made-March challenge I have a cute Japanese top to show you:

It's a design from one of the very first Japanese sewing books I bought, the Camisole and Dress Patterns book. I can't tell you how much I love this book, it's a treasure trove of cute tops and dresses! I've made most of the designs in it and I still enjoy sewing them, not to mention that you can alter the patterns to your liking :) Here I used dotted cotton fabric and chose a size 11 out of the 4 possible sizes in the book (7 is super tiny, 9 is for slim girls, 11 is for plumps like me and 13 is equivalent to a US 14-16). Extra views of the top:

Well, see you tomorrow for our last MMM day!

  1. That is a cute top. I will have to check out that book. I have a few Japanese pattern books, but not that one. I have enjoyed looking at all your MMM items

  2. Polka dots and ruffles - what more could you want? And you're totally insiring me to jump on the Japanese sewing book trend. The question now is, which one?!

  3. Plump! LOL! Come to America where you could be skinny-skinny! Instead of just thin-looking

  4. I'm glad you like the top ladies! Emily there are so many great Japanese sewing books, I agree that it can be tough to choose one :)
