My thesis is finally done and I have time for sewing!
I wanted to begin with something fun and easy.
This is a prototype for a top I drafted. It is super simple, just two pieces (50×100cm) one has a hole for head and side seams have openings for arms. The top is sewn together to form the hood.
It was inspired by pattern magic3 t-shirt.(and all the pattern magics and drape drapes)
I’m thinking of adding sleeves to the next version, so I could actually wear it now in the winter. And maybe putting the seam in the front(zipper) or back so it would’t be so visible on the drape-hood-part.
