Quick project: Summer top

I'm blaming the summer heat for working on simple projects! But I promise, two more complex garments are waiting in my sewing room: the Starlet Jacket and a silk maxi dress

Yet more garments from the Japanese sewing book かんたん,かわいい.まっすぐソーイング (Easy, cute. Sewing in a straight line).  


I used a piece of silk bought at Marché St.Pierre in Paris five years ago. It was about time to transform it into something wearable. One hour and the top was done! All the lines were indeed straight ;) 





After work - a nice reward in the form of a Vietnamese sandwich and 333 beer ;). This cute creature is a mascot of the sandwich shop.

    1. Honestly speaking, I think most of the Japanese designs suit only Asian type of figure. But some (like this top) are pretty much for everyone ;)

  2. What a cute top! I am totally in your mentally - it's summertime and I don't want to work hard. Unfortunately, my not-so-hard project has turned into the-most-epic-project yet!

    1. You can leave your bf in one of the cafés nearby and let him enjoy a glass of beer while you enjoy the fabric shopping ;-)

  6. These pattern books look really inspiring. You did a great job. BTW thanks for posting about making underwear. I want to give it a go but need to kick myself into gear to get a pattern.

  7. Cute! It's so satisfying to do a really quick easy project like that sometimes! I'm wearing a jersey striped tank top today that I jus finished, and while it's nothing special, it's comfy and versatile and only took an hour. Hurray for easy sewing!
