Coral

Coral is the name of this blouse.
Correctly, it's the name of the pattern for this blouse.


Originally, Coral has got a set of pretty cool asymmetric sleeves. Because I love being rather boring as you probably know, I made my version have one symmetric set of left sleeves on both side, like most blouses in the world have. I think the result turned out a cool and beautiful top in spite of my big effort. Too bad...

Coral blouse
pattern:
  Coral from TAMANEGI-KOBO (PDF pattern)
size38(JP9). Symmetric use of the left sleeve to both sleeves. Lettuce edge execution for sleeve hem. Overlock binding at hem and neckline.

fabric: Polyester georgette, light, thin, sheer, off-white, flowery pattern. Cotton/polyester jersey, light and smooth, T shirt-weight, pastel pink, stretches well, for hem and neck band.

I think I need to make another one with asymmetric sleeves, too. This is a fun pattern, which makes feminine summery blouses.

You can also read the post for the red pants here.



**By the way, do I have to make supplementary notes when I'm kidding? I hope not. I hope you got me in what I wrote above! Ah, it's extremely complicated and embarrassing to joke in foreign language. I always have to ask everybody if they realized that I have made a joke. sigh.**



Talk to you soon,
Love,

  1. I understood and thought it was a funny joke. Your english is great! Top looks great too, I would have done the same thing with the sleeves.

  4. I know some English-speaking natives with much worse English than you, so don't worry about it. Your English is very good. :-)

  6. Very pretty! I would have made the sleeves the same, as you did. And maybe do the shorter/sleeveless version for the other blouse -- still symmetric. Is the sleeve cut on (part of the same pattern) as blouse bodice?
    Btw, your English is great, and I didn't have a second thought as to whether or not you were joking -- so, please stop worrying that things get lost in translation. I think that jokes are a problem in foreign language only when the joke is based on a piece of pop-culture that is specific to its country of origin. So... lovely blouse, lovely post! (Good to see you are incorporating your awesome "punk pants" into your wardrobe successfully!)

  7. I think that the asymetrical sleeves would drive me out of my mind - I couldn't stand to look at the original for more than a few seconds before wanting to scream! Your version looks much nicer & it doesn't look like you ran out of fabric & gave up ;-) !

  11. I love to read your blog, in part because the clothes are lovely and interesting, but also because I like to read your words. Even though it is a foreign language for you, your English is very beautiful. People who speak English first are often lazy and use the same words every time, so your writing is pleasantly different.

  12. Hi Olga, thanks for your kind comment. Okay! I'm going to stop worrying too much any more. Regarding the sleeves, the left one (the ones I have) is a kind of raglan sleeves and the right one is one of cut-on types (extended part of bodice).

  13. Brilliant! That's exactly what I though when I saw the pattern a couple of weeks ago: this is like a 3 in 1 pattern (as is or with any of the sleeve variation on both sides). Love yours!

  14. Fabulous blouse. I think the assymetrical version would also look great.

  15. This is such a beautiful, soft, feminine blouse. You look great in it..and nice posing too!

    And I am also amazed that you can make the red skinny jeans that fit you so well. It looks store bought! Well, both top and jeans look like they are from GAP!

  16. Your new blouse is pretty, and I like your jokes! No need to explain... I like the pockets on your jeans. I don't think you showed this in your original post on them. Do they have contrasting pockets?

  17. Your blouse is adorable (and I like it better with two matching sleeves)! Looks great with your snazzy jeans.


    P.s. We can tell when you're joking, so don't make yourself crazy explaining. Just go for it.

  18. @9e21754773f775754fde466f36429f97 You're so right. I didn't show the pockets in the original post. I had these small pieces of leftover fabric and put them on the back pocket. They are like some patchwork-kind of work. I though it was fun, but it ended just funny. I still like them though ;) Thank you for the comment!
