I've seen quite a few off-the-shoulder tops this season but Sachiyo's version is now one of my favourites! Mum and I spotted her in our Chatswood store yesterday and when we saw her we had to find out if it was me-made or RTW. We were delighted to discover it was the former, and made up in a lovely fine licorice/black striped rayon/nylon that we carried a few seasons ago.
The pattern she used was Simplicity 9582
, printed in 1996. Sachiyo used style/view E, modifying the pattern by adding 6cm to the top edges of all the pattern pieces for the elastic tunnel casing and omitting the sleeve ruffles. The wide elastic casing includes a top ruffle then follows an elastic tunnel (9mm elastic) casing, with alternating rows for the elastic tunnel casings. This results in lovely gathers between each elasticated row and it's totally this detail which makes the top!
We love everything about Sachiyo's outfit! She paired back her lovely top with pull-on pants made up in our chocolate brown/blue yarn-dyed 100% linen (sold out) from last summer and we can't resist mentioning her super cool clear optical glasses, African print patchwork cloth bag and comfy red Camper sandals :)
Yes, as you can tell we're BIG fans Sachiyo! Thank you again for letting us share your creations.
