Sundry Stripes

I guess I've been de-striping my stash lately. These two are both chez ami fabrics: the blue and white is interlock and the pink and purple is cotton/lycra.

This is a quick and fun shirt to make up (Sweet 'n Cosy Raglan Sleeve Blouse from Ottobre 6-2008-13). The details aren't time consuming, yet they add a lot. The arms are shirred with elastic thread and the sleeve hems are gathered with elastic.

Sara's very pleased with her new duds and they match her new navy cords.

The shirred sleeves are medievalesque, which gives me half a mind to extend the pattern into a dress, and leave the sleeves ungathered in a bell shape. Quick costume? Maybe not in striped cotton/lycra, though.


  1. As soon as I saw those shirred sleeves, I thought - perfect medieval costume!! Brilliant!

  2. I really like this pattern. I don't know why I've overlooked it before. You're doing a great job keeping up with the sewing.

  3. Oh the pinkle and purple stripes are adorable.

  4. Lovely tops! I love the shirred sleeves.


Sorry to add word verification. Too much spam lately....
