Adventures in garment construction. (Plus random thoughts, photos of interesting places and stuff I've made!)

This boxy linen top was cut out at the same time as the skirt panels. It is based on the Kirsten Kimono Tee with a slightly lengthened sleeve, reshaped neckline and slightly cropped hem. I cut it on the fold and all the hems are finished with the overlocker then turned and stitched.
It can be worn with yesterday's skirt as a dress look, or over trousers as a modern summer top.
Apologies for the terrible taken-in-the-dark-with-a-flash photo, but hopefully gives you an idea of it as a dress. The wide elastic belt is great at covering over the place where the top is tucked into the skirt. I'd happily wear this to work with a shortish coloured jacket (turquoise, red, lime) and appropriate accessories.
