'I, yoshimi of yoshimi the flying squirrel, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-March '11. I endeavour to wear at least one self-stitched garment each day for the duration of March 2011'
Yes I'll have a go.
To confess, it seems difficult for me to take a picture of my outfit everyday, but I've decided to do my best. Visit Zoe's blog if you aren't familiar with her marvelous Me-Made-March '11 project, there you'll see a big number of us joining it. You may read my old posts here and here related to my past (pseudo) project as well.
I sewed a pretty blouse.
This is made of very fine light-weight cotton, and it surely seems good for spring wardrobe. Although neither the fabric or the print was very unusual, the construction of this blouse was somewhat unique. It has got a set of dolman sleeves with a long shoulder yoke which extends to the hand cuffs.

Aren't they cute with this flowery pattern?
I wish you a lovey day,
pattern: TAO(dolman sleeve blouse) from TAMANEGI-KOBO size 9
sleeves: lengthened by 4.5cm
hem: lengthened by 10cm.
pattern: JOKER(semi-baggy pants) from TAMANEGI-KOBO size 9
pockets: modified (rear: patch pockets, front: angled slash pockets)
pants: lengthened by about 10cm.
Hemming was done after hot washing and tumble drying of the garment.
cotton stretch light-weight denim, soft, stretches well.
It was sewn into pants before the first wash and shrunk to get a fit by hot-washing plus tumble drying.
