In this few months, the weather is very hot.Actually very very hot! Malaysia, summer throughout the year........
I started my work in the afternoon and you can just imagine ....woo ! sweating and sweating !
It is better to wear cotton fabric clothes. I made several cotton blouses . This is one of them. This top can match with jean as well as skirt.My friends like this top. I like it too because it is nice to wear especially in hot weather.
The original pattern from the pattern book does not has pleats at the front neck line. After I completed the sewing and tried it on, I found that the neck opening was too wide. So no choice, I undid the front binding and added pleats on it. I inserted elastic string at the lower part which is not stated in the pattern too.
I was attracted by this material when I entered the Jackel Textile Store.Oh, it is beautiful .The pattern is nice and the colour combination is perfectly matched !
Without thinking further , I decided to buy 1.2 meter to sew a blouse.
Yes, a simple blouse. I sew a very simple blouse, short sleeves and withot zip.
When I wore this top to work, a few of of my colleagues like it very much and asked me where to get the material. But I doubt it is still available in the store because I had kept it for three months before I manage to have time to work on it. I am happy others like it too.
