I had a nice long four day weekend off of work - had all kinds of plans to finish up a bunch of stuff, clean the house, organize and donate outgrown clothes - did I do all these thing? No, not even.
I got sidetracked in my sewing - I had seen so many nice Oliver + S 2+2 tops in the Flickr that were sewn from one fabric only that I knew I just needed to make one for the child. And, of course, I used some of my favorite fabric - gauze from Nani Iro's Naomi Ito. This is from her Little Letter line, and it's really beautiful. Her work is really like artwork on fabric.
If you want to see any of her fabric lines, you can check out their online shop here: Nani Iro 2013. I am going to Seven Islands fabric in a couple of weeks to order more for my shop, and I keep looking at all these beautiful designs - I can't even begin to decide which I want to stock....I wish I had enough money to get them all!
I really think this pattern works nicely in all one fabric - gives it a totally different look. In my opinion, this works especially nice in a muted color scheme.
The child seems to like it....time will tell if she'll wear it! This is a size 3T with 2 1/2 inches added length. Hopefully, this will last through the summer.....
