Japanese Top


Geez Louise. It is nearly impossible to take pictures of yourself. This is the best I could do since my extra pair of hands are on a business trip to Tokyo tonight....

I finished the Japanese top - View D from Stylish Dress Book. I made the largest size (there are four sizes of patterns), but it wound up being super big. I just assumed I would be size humongous in Japanese world. Turns out, I may be only semi-huge. I had to take it in at the front center and at the sides. It looks much better after the alterations.

I used some precious Liberty lawn from the stash. It was a worthy pattern. I am pleased.

Lovely blouse. I've just found your blog via flickr. I was interested in the covered buttons, as I just had some made. I see you have a button machine, which makes me envious.
