Blue bunches

Added Nov 10, 2011

Perth, Australia






From Pattern Magic 3 by Tomoko Nakamichi, this is version A of the top on p58. I nicknamed it ’bunches" because this is what we called this hairstyle when I was in primary school. I think it can be worn either way around; with the bunches at the front or at the back…
The skirt is Vogue 8363, of burnt orange raw silk
also on my blog here

Material Notes

thin cotton jersey I think thicker fabric would have given a better structural result here though)




Garment Type
Beach, Casual, Other

    Cool top! I am waiting for that book to be in English, but I can see daughters no 1 & 2 wanting some of these!

      thank you! I don’t speak Japanese either, but the illustrations in the book are very clear, if that helps!
