krazy kanji

The hardest thing about making this shirt was downloading the pattern!
Once you figure out that the pattern is the front half joined to the back half at the shoulder, the rest is unbelievably simple! So simple in fact that I didn’t think I’d get anything out of it. This is my first attempt with cheap fabric and made fast and I love it! Next time I’ll spend more on the fabric and spend more time making it. I would probably cut real sleeves instead of using the pattern ones.
If you feel like giving it a go, don’t be put off by the kanji, you just paste the link, download files A-M the instructions are 1-7 (You have to download each page separately). This pattern is surprising but really great, and it’s FREE!

Material Notes

Ribbed cream coloured cheap lycra.






Sakko for providing the link and inspiring me to give it a try!

    I agree with IchiGoGirl about the look of your top. Maybe I’ll have a look at the pattern…

    Aaaah, a downloadable japanese pattern, thank you for the link! Your top looks great, stylish. I like the material too (doesn’t look cheap at all).
