asymmetrical Nanso top/tunic/dress

Espoo, Finland






this was prolly one of the easiest project i’ve done!
just buy 0,65cm of jersey fabric of your choice (in my case, i bought a Nanso fabric that’s on a special offer at Eurokangas), cut a hole in the middle of the width of the fabric (for your head), sew the side seams, leaving around 40cm holes (that’s 20cm on back + front part) on each side for your arms. done!

i made mine asymmetrical though, so i made the hole for the head not in the middle, but closer to one side, and then cut the bottom (hemline) somewhat diagonally and just left it like that (i didn’t sew the hemline..too lazy to bother!).

the “hardest” part was that i don’t have a serger/overlocker, so i mainly used the zigzag stitch, which turned out to be imperfect. but whatever. if it’s wearable, i’m happy :)

and the fun part is, i can wear it backwards too..so i can choose which shoulder part is longer than the other, left or right, hmmm…

Material Notes

65cm of cotton jersey

    im going to try dying some tights this week, i’ve been cornflower blue (or any light blue for that matter) tights all over the city to no avail. ill let you know if it works, you could just dye the legs of white tights with different colors

    love the way it looks with the tights. did you dye them yourself or did you buy them like that?

      actually, they’re 2 different tights, i just put each leg on each tights XD
      and then i tie the other leg parts around my tummy. anything for a photoshoot!
      too bad they don’t sell dia-tone tights like those that much.
