Sewing project: summer top
Finished! I've always wanted to make something from one of those Japanese craft books (which are all in Japanese). I've found a few web sites which provide translations of some of the sewing terms, but from what I've heard, if you have some basic sewing skills you can pretty much just follow the diagrams. I finally invested in a roll of tissue paper for pattern drafting (the books come with the patterns but they all overlap, so you need to draft the individual pieces). This top was very easy to make, except that I found the neckline too big, so I had to gather it a bit.
