Just a simple kimono sleeve sack shape that generally I wouldn’t touch. However the pleats at the neckline give it a lift. I bought some black and white cotton lawn from an ebay seller. It took an afternoon to make.
The sleeves are finished by simply pressing a 5/8″ amount and then 5/8″ again, and stitching. I would normally french seam the shoulders and side seams but I couldn’t work out how to do this and hem the sleeves. I just overlocked the seams instead. The neckline has facings which are sewn down to the shoulder seams. I really don’t like facings and their tendency to peek out. If I made it again I would do a bias binding finish.
I like the top, but it is a little long for me to wear untucked, it looks too baggy on me. I’d shorten it a couple of inches or remove some of the volume and wear it longer.
It is certainly an airy blouse, and was just right for the day. There were so many people we couldn’t get a seat, and had to stand in the lobby in about 30degC heat! I wore tights for the ceremony and ripped them off straight afterwards. ( In my father’s bathroom, in case you were thinking anything inappropriate.)
