Description

After coming back from my vacation I felt that my every day wardrobe needs refreshing. But from thinking to doing something about it – it’s a long way! I had the floral pattern fabric for a few years now, and the cream fabric I had purchased around the same time thinking to combine these two (both are cotton mix). Deciding on a design is always the hardest part. The premise was to make something simple but somehow that never quite comes true:)) For years I just left these fabrics aside because I didn’t get any inspiration for that simple design that is complicated enough to please me:)) I started working on this “tunic-like top” with something completely different in mind, but once you start eating you have to keep chewing, so I had to make it work. Most of my designs imply asymmetry – that’s not news anymore, is it?:)) That’s what makes it click for me and I feel my best creations will always have an asymmetrical cut or detail. Other features of this top: a small cream bow on one shoulder, sleeves with ties and slits on each side. The treatment of the cream fabric is similar up to a point to what happens to my wrinkled necklaces and definitely inspired from that. In a way I have created a new fabric by shirring, ironing, embroidering, applique-ing and double layering. It was fun, it was exciting, and I hope to use “this kind of fabric” again.

Also on my blog.

    Innovative and striking but I believe it’d be lovelier without the sleeves. Well done and excellent job quilting!

      It’s true, those two go hand in hand. When do we see a new Vasi Project?:D

    This is really cute! The fabrics could have gone “grandma” style really quickly but you used just the right design and it looks great!
