When we visited Peter´s parents last winter, we found this awesome t-shirt (how cool were the 80ies?? - I especially love the white gloves) among Peter´s childhood stuff. It was huge and I therefore recut it into a more contemporary shape. For the V-neck, I reused the original neck ribbing with a small insert of t-shirt fabric in the back.
Kimono shirts have several advantages: they do not require a lot of fabric, they are quickly made, they look cool, and they allow air circulation which is crucial in summer;-). So, I made these two summer tops in almost no time with the same pattern that I used for the green shirt. The dark one has a wide turtle neck and bands at the sleeve hems and lower hem, the hems and neckline of the light one are just fold to the left side and topstitched with a twin needle.
I love all things handmade! This blog is a record of my crafting projects (mainly sewing and knitting), but I also write about traveling, cooking and every day life if I find it worth sharing. Please leave a comment if you like it!
