One of the advantage of having a small body is that I only need small amount of fabric to make clothing. That way I can make use of those impulsive half-yard cut fabric shopping. These tops were whipped very quick today, the pattern is so simple, and only consisted of two pieces.
The batik top is made with leftover fabric from my tie-front dress. It has side slits with the front and back hem in different lengths. The wide stripes one is made with very comfortable double gauze cotton. The fabric is not enough to make the neck facings, so I stitched a linen tape along the neckline and just let the raw edges shown. I laid the pattern pieces horizontally and use the fabric selvedges for the bottom part, no need to stitch the hem!
I usually wear dresses and rarely wear separates like these, so these shorts and skirts were almost never worn. The funny bubble shorts were bought like 6 years ago in a small boutique in Jakarta, the skirt was bought even longer before that in Bali, and both of them still look like new. Now that I’ve got a couple of new tops, I can wear them for summer. I love how comfortable these tops are, will make more of them!
Oh and I also love my new golden oxford shoes, they are from goldenponies at etsy, so pretty and comfortable. I especially love wearing them in shiny day and watch the sunlight reflected around my feet when I walk. It almost look like I would fly in any moment!
