Retro (Japanese) Rainbow Top
Added Jul 5, 2012
DescriptionThis is based on a burdastyle magazine pattern from the April 2012 issue (it’s number 116) using some very beautiful and very cheap (100 yen for a metre!) Japanese fabric that grabbed my attention. I get lots of approving looks from little old ladies on the train in Tokyo, and it’s my most successful top to date! I pretty much followed the pattern instructions, but I changed the collar (by adding a narrower band of interfacing) to make it less like a school blouse. I think it needs to be longer, but it works well as a light jacket over dresses and as a blouse with high waisted skirts and trousers.
