looky, looky, another sewing project already!
i got about 60 cm of the fabric (about 160 cm wide), which is a ponte jersey. it was done without any pattern, just cut 2 T-shaped pieces and the leftover was for the sleeves.
the pleats on the sleeves were done just by feeling, and since i wanted the sleeves to be wide, it turned out that the leftover pieces weren’t wide enough… so i added some smaller scraps to the inner seams, hahaha! you can see it from the middle picture above, but when i am actually wearing the top, no one can see it. 😉
just for fun, i made the front part shorter than the back.
my husband thinks the print and colour looks like Indonesian batik on this fabric. perhaps he’s right. but that only makes this even more special. 🙂
i wore this top outdoors once already, and then the weather here suddenly turned from winter straight on to summer!! 😀 somehow we’ve managed to skip spring! today it was about 27C degrees outside, hurrah!
well… i’m not complaining! this is still a successful top that i know i will wear many more times in its lifetime. after all, who doesn’t love monkeying around?
have a sunny summer, everyone! ❤
