Sewing 'Rithmetic




It's not that I'm obsessed with this color, but... I'm sort of obsessed.

I designed and executed the pattern myself and I'm quite pleased. I did have a very clear idea in my head when I started and it's pretty close to what I envisioned.

The bag was one that I really loved but I've been using it as my carry-on for planes and it was totally coming apart. Hmmm. Maybe that's because it's made of voile. So I put the voile to a much more appropriate use. The yellow is my extra leftover from here.

It took me a while to accept the loose floaty shape which isn't exactly what I wanted, but it's soo comfortable and a dream to wear.

Too bad it's so rainy and depressing here! A top like this wants sun and heat!
