On to more crafting goodness. I have been trying to reduce the stash of the fabric I've amassed and am working on a top that, at least from the pictures is too cute. Whether it will really turn out that way when I am done with it is another story but at least I'm going to try:
I am taking the top half of Simplicity 4020 (View D)
combining it with the bottom half of Simplicity 3838
to make a top I saw at Anthropologie.
I am using a lovely blue floral fabric for the main fabric and a red cotton trim for the base. Both of the fabrics were cheap, so it will be my muslin, which if it turns out well will also conveniently be my real kimono top.
I'll show pictures of the finished thing (ha, more likely work in progress) next time!
