this is a vintage liz claiborne set, thrown into a five-dollar basket at the thrift store just because I had more space:
I thought the print was cute, and I'm pretty into florals right now. I just finished making the top into a little tank.
I switched the front and back around, as you can see. I had wanted the buttons to be in back, and the front just worked out the way it did - I was originally going to have the front plain, but decided that I liked the idea of having the pleat there. I didn't have to mess with the shoulder seam, either.
This type of rayon, sort of a cotton-like weave, is becoming one of my favorite fabrics. It has the stability of a cotton, but the flowyness of something much more challenging to sew. This tank will probably be one of my favorites in the upcoming summer - it is so comfortable!
The armholes are just a little too low to wear without a cami, but I'm thinking of adding a fake cami thing to each side, like what some people do to shirts that are too low. It's not that big of a deal, but our summers are hot, and fewer layers is GOOD!
I still have the gauchos and sleeves, which I'm not sure about what to do with yet. Hopefully you'll see soon!
