Here's my newest wardrobe addition:
Here's the back view:
This was suppose to be fast and easy. As with everything I've made lately, it feels like I do more seam ripping then actual sewing. I knew this was going to be blousy, and since I just made the yellow muumuu top with an elastic casing around the bottom, I thought I'd change it up and use a drawstring to cinch up the waist. I spent a bunch of time working on that idea and then tried it on. UGLY!!! Hmmm, I guess I'll do an elastic casing after all. I did 3 around the bottom so it wouldn't look exactly like the other shirt.
Here is a picture of the inside. I put french seams down the sides and covered the armpit seams with pink bias tape. I like to cover exposed seams when possible. This gives the garment a really clean look.
I saw this pattern and thought it was interesting and unlike anything I have. Then I found a crinkly shiny fabric (just like the girl in pink on the pattern envelope) and inspiration was born.
The arm bands are just a tiny bit too tight, but I wasn't about to do any more seam ripping for that minor an issue. Otherwise, it's pretty comfortable. What do you think?
