Brooklyn, New Yo...
This is based on the One-piece Side Drape Top from Hisako Sato’s book, Drape Drape 2.
I used a cheap polyester knit for my first foray into the Drape Drape patterns. Unfortunately, what could have been a very fast, simple project became an exercise in fabric destruction. With every stitch I had to rip out, I found myself making irreparable holes into the fabric. Luckily, this was in black and my mistakes were not as noticeable as they could be with another color.
I do love this simple pattern though, and the polyester fabric doesn’t wrinkle so it would be a nice piece to pack on vacation! Looking forward to the warm weather so I can wear this… if it ever comes back to New York!
