Broken striped top and black shorts

Broken striped top Broken striped top

These are the simple shorts that I made yesterday, along with an equally simple top. The waistband of the shorts is elasticized while the front waistband is kept flat, so there’s no need for fastener. The original pattern is for pants but I shortened it and added a row of black cotton lace on the hem. The top is pretty simple with only two pattern pieces, the front and back pattern are the same except for the neckline.

Both patterns are from a Japanese pattern magazine called ソーイングナチュリラ vol.4. You can see the top and pants are on the left in this picture.

The fabric for the top is cotton knit with interesting broken stripes pattern, I found the fabric quite cheap in Nippori. The shorts are made with black cotton, leftover from my husband’s shorts.

We have three consecutive holidays this week, usually called Golden Week, so we’re planning to go hiking to the mountain area. I’m going to wear my new comfortable top!
