I am not finished yet but it is coming together nicely.
I have enough tee's but I needed a slightly more dressy top, something that would work, dressed down with jeans or dressed up with a skirt/trousers.
Lekala patterns suit me well as I can put my measurements in and get a product, ready to go.
And at around $3, what is not to like?
The wee pocket is faux but a neat detail.
The neckline is faced.
It had a nice long shaped hem, the back longer then the front.
I added side vents as I like the ease it gives me.
The sleeve cuffs are not mentioned at all in the pattern instructions so I attached them, with the seam on the inside, covered with the folded cuff.
It has a really nice shape,very comfortable and very cool to wear.
The fabric is some vintage John Kaldor rayon from my SIL's stash, the same I used to sew Zara's blouse.
Paired with my Burda skirt (yet to be blogged) silver slip ons, a hat and pearl jewellery to a 1st Birthday.
Last night, I wore it to Presentation Night with the same skirt but under my biker jacket and with black slides and bolder earrings.
I am tossing around making a black rayon version but, to be honest, I don't think I need it.
Maybe when this one wears out?
I love my capsule wardrobe and will continue working at it.
Thanks for reading.
