I made this before we went away in December and then forgot that I’d made it. I found it during a recent cull of clothing and was so delighted.
It’s from the drape drape 2 Japanese pattern book
It’s the second garment I’ve made from this book (the asymmetrical top being the other one), and I can’t wait to make this particular top again!
It goes brilliantly over my ruched tops, and teams well with my black Style Arc leggings and some black stretch trousers I made last year.
I find the baggy bit at the side a bit of a challenge. I keep wanting to turn it into a pocket and stick my hand in it.
and then a friend suggested that I pin it. I tried this, but couldn’t bear to stick a pin through the fabric, instead I used a magnet, which I quite like.
I’ve seen a lot of these around on various blogs and am pleased to have my own. Next one will be in a more wintry material with a better drape and perhaps some stripes. This one is a plain cotton knit, which would have been wonderful if I’d found it in time for the summer!
