I saw the flutter sleeve cardi a few months ago and I wanted to make one for myself.
I made the orginal design , but when I saw the result i had the vision of adding one more piece to make the front to cover a little bit more and I added some ruffles. This is my first time ever doing this kind of ruffles with elastic thread, I fell inlove immediately with them so I want to make more ruffles things in the future :D
Also i wanted a belt for it to fit perfectly so i did.
I used a mesh fabric because I wanted something different …
it took me several hours to finish the project ,I think I will do another one in the future because it is a cute design and very confortable for those windy summer afternoons.
i think it looks alright… I tried it on my mannequin and took some pictures…. its on the washing machine right now because I dont like the smell of the fabric so I dont want to wear it until it actually smells good :D
1,5 mt of mesh fabric
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
