Using the design from the Pattern Magic by Tomoko Nakamichi as a starting point; I chose to make mine into a little top of white linen, with a button band at the centre back and a wide waist band. Short self-drafted sleeves. Neckline facing; flat felled shoulder and side seams and HongKong binding on the armhole seam allowances.

    I love your top and it is so classical. You have convinced me to look into Tomoko’s patterns. Well done.

    Perfect! Such a great way of using the bamboo folds.

    And as usual your pictures make me dream of heaven (summer), it’s chilly, led grey and barely no daylight at all here at the moment… I kind of get hope back by looking at that last picture!

    Lovely, fine work and perfect for a hot day like today, find the books a bit intimidating though!
