This turned out totally different to what I imagined but then again I didn’t have a clear idea of what I wanted to start with.
I love the form, its casual, comfortable, airy. Please don’t pay any attention to the loose threads this is a first attempt that I am about to cut up so I can use this version as a pattern. I don’t have a good photo of the back (haven’t quite mastered the the backwards turn and twist with the camera yet!!) but it basically has a centre back seam & 2 others straight down to take in a little volume. There are no shoulder seams it’s one long piece with front and back joined.

Material Notes

some kind of synthetic mix, very light (a little too light), and a little stretchy.

    I really like the way the pleating in the front turned out. Very cool.

    the front pleat is really interesting. I’d say it was a succesful experiment!
