I have two linen suits , beautiful, but the tops have always been too tight under the arms. They were both like the brown one in the picture. I cut the armholes bigger and put contrasting bias on the raw edge, then added floaty sleeves and a waist band, all in the same contrasting striped linen fabric. The whole business was pretty fiddly, especially as I had never used bias binding, let alone made my own before! I’m pretty pleased with the result and I now have a top I can use both with it’s matching skirt, but also other trousers.
Striped linen fabric. Bias binding made of the same material.
The lines of Greek architecture inspire this neutral and pastel collection.
