It’s taken me months, but I finally finished sewing this shirt! Here’s a shot of it in the shade:
And a shot in the sun:
I used a pattern out of one of my Japanese craft books (Blouse Pants Skirt). The fabric, of course, is from superbuzzy. The directions and diagrams in this book aren’t as detailed as some other Japanese sewing books, so I had to improvise quite a bit. In the book this top is super long and billowy. I shortened it and made the black flat instead of gathered. It feels pretty blousy and maternity-ish with just the front gathered, so I’m glad I made that alteration! Peter didn’t have too many rude comments about it. He did note that it was a “new look” for me and did say something about it resembling maternity clothing. Don’t worry, folks, these eggs are all dried up, so there’s no need for actual maternity clothes around here.
