As I’d like to have everything in my wardrobe made by myself, I need some simple and comfortable tops.
Here are two of that kind!
One is a little loose with pleats around the neckline, very comfy, the second one is tighter.
Actually, I wanted to make a cowl neck, but I made mistakes and it ended up like that.
Some hand-sewing was necessary for the finitions, as I don’t have an overlocker…
I drafted the patterns, with the help of this technique (for the pleats) and a pattern-making website (for the sleeves) for the black and red one.
Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures, but I’m fed up with waiting my boyfriend to be available for this!
