All ready for Spring


Sewn in July for #sewjapaneseinjuly, but perfect for our current Melbourne Spring weather, this brighter than bright green linen top is a new favourite.  The linen was purchased last year from The Cloth Shop, but I have it on good word it will be returning soon.


The pattern is a single-sized Japanese pattern from a book in my collection [ISBN 978-4-579-11395-8].  If the book looks familiar, I sewed this top from it in January this year.



In my opinion, the photograph for Pattern R doesn’t highlight the lovely style lines for this top.  Thankfully, the line drawing came to the rescue.


The tucks on the back sleeve just delight me.


The back yoke grew a bit with handling.  Next time I sew this pattern, I will stay stitch those curves.  And yes, there will definitely be a next time!


As I mentioned earlier, this is a single-sized pattern and I made no alterations. You heard right, not one change!  Insert happy dance.


Be warned though, this is a very loose silhouette and there is a lot of fabric in those sleeves…  which is not great if you want to wear anything fitted over the top, but perfect for warm days.


I must confess I feel rather chic swanning around in this outfit.
