Description

This is the top “a” and the skirt “m” from the Japanese pattern book, Unique Clothes Any Way You Like, by Natsuko Hiraiwa. The top is made of swiss voile, and has two long sashes inserted in the shoulder seams that can be wrapped and worn in several different ways. It buttons closed at the left side seam with four nacre buttons. The other side seam is finished in French seaming.
The skirt is made out of linen/cotton mix, with an interesting and unusual colour of both salmon pink and grey in the threads. As the fabric is loose woven and slightly sheer I lined the skirt completely using thin taupe cotton muslin. The skirt and lining are attached at the top seam, and the slits handstitched together on the inside.

Material Notes

    It feels so organic and easy! I really love those pieces! I can see the futuristic vibe on it too.
