GBSB From Stitch to Style: Japanese Style Top

This is the book which accompanies the latest series of the Great British Sewing Bee which recently finished.

I decided to sew the 'Japanese Style Top' which I don't recall being featured on the series.
(This is different to another similar style which was a challenge on an earlier series).

I really wanted to showcase the angles and drapes so decided to use the 1/2" red and white stripe jersey.
So far I have traced off the pattern pieces and glued them together with a glue stick and cut them out as per the layout diagram, with the exception of the cuffs which I cut with the stripe going round not up and down.
I have to say it is looking fairly crazy and I can't quite imagine what it is going to look like sewn up. We shall see (maybe as early as tomorrow) or if not I am then out, away and out again so it'll be next week.

Looking forward to seeing this. It sounds very interesting use of fabric and the style looks very chic but comfortable.

I have a white and green stripe I was thinking of using to make this. Looking forward to seeing yours first! :)
