I bought this beautiful fabric by Pat Bravo called Marqueterie in Berry. I love all of the colors in it! You could wear this top with anything and it would match! I have been on a Washi Kick lately and if you are wondering, "What is that?". It is an adorable dress/ tunic pattern by Made by Rae.
I have found that I like to make tops more than dresses for myself. I end up wearing the top more and it takes less time and fabric.
Here is a picture of the shirring process.
This is a picture of the front of the bodice. I placed cap sleeves on my washi tunic this time. The directions call for you to sew the sleeves on after sewing the side seams. However, if you are using an overlock machine, it is easier to sew the sleeves on before sewing the side seams.
Here is the back. I like the tailored look that the shirring gives to this garment.
Can't wait to sew a few more.
