Arty Kimono Sleeve Top

Split Neck Top – Burdastyle 08/2014 #108A

I got this vintage jersey remnant with an arty print on it while at a market stall for sewing addicts one weekend, and I had just enough to make this top, although I had to join two halves together for the centre back. I was able to focus and do the sewing carefully on this one, especially for the bodice interfacing. I also doubled over the sleeve hems and hem, but not very well lol. I thought the large kimono style sleeves and the cut would show the print off. Location: Auckland City
