I am not one for ruffles or bows most often, but dress L in Sasahara Noriko’s pattern book Nonchalant Feminine Style was too clever and classic for me not to try! Most of the patterns are for fall in this book and this pattern originally had a very full sleeve attached. I shortened the sleeve to make it more spring summery but felt like it was still too heavy so i decided sleeveless was the way to go.
This pattern can even be slightly modified to be completely reversible if you have the patience for the finishing!
I love this top, it is chic and effortless, and is satisfying my desire for summer whites. I cant wait to wear it with tight denim and bandeau skirts!
