Using a pattern from a Japanese Pattern book I sewed this shirt with a fabric dedigned by Nani Iro.
It is made from double gauze cotton, little oversized, but therefore very suitable for hot summer days, zipper-less. As often in Japanese patterns, a bias tape is used for the neckline.
Originally, I made a dress of this fabric, but then decided to use my scissors and convert it to a shirt plus skirt (will follow).
