With some encouraging comments, I decided to explore my borders to the stripy world. I mean, after posting this T shirt I received some comments that I should not be hesitating but could be happier with wearing more of bolder/brighter stripes. I took their words very reasonable, and I've been feeling to try ever since. Recently, I happened to get (this is a funny expression though, we all know I bought it) this fabric, and I convinced myself that it was the time.
BurdaStyle 1 piece Kimono Tee
Thanks pixelink, for sharing such a simple and pretty pattern. I love it very much!
I made a dress from the tee pattern, by just lengthening it without any width alteration. I also added some rows of elastic shirring at low waist, for blousing the top half of the dress. It was so quick! (FYI: I cut the front and back body parts separately because of those stripes to match, so it's no longer 1 piece but I'd name it "1 piece Kimono Tee dress" with my deepest respect.)
I am very happy with how it turned out. I think the pattern went very well with the stripes. Great thing is that I feel happy in it too!
I tell you this. I feel that I need to tell it every now and then.
I'm always most grateful to you for your feedback, encouragements, advices and all. I love the fact they make me sew. They encourage me to be better. Better in many ways, including a stripy way.
