A Red SAORI top…

 

Just in time for Christmas…

Lynn came by last week and we always have fun doing a show and tell (a mini SAORI Kai!). Lynn brought a fabulous new top that she made…

I loved the colours, of course, and it was so comfortable to wear that I didn’t want to give it back. Well, the next best thing was examining how she made it, and with her help and hints making one of my own!

I just happened to have this fabric that last year had been hanging in my house – now ready for some clothing :)

The pattern is from the Self Innovation book and is very easy to make. My fabric was narrower than the pattern called for, so I cut one length of fabric down the middle lengthwise and added it to the edge of the fabric to make it wider before beginning the construction.

    Hi Terri, I love it!!!! It turned out so well. The white icicles ended up where they wanted to be and the fringe is perfect!! We’ll have to go out together wearing our tops…..

      Thanks Lynn – and thanks for your help! Yes, the white icicles worked out okay in the end :) That would be fun to go out in our tops together!!

  2. It’s lovely! With your arms stretched out, it looks like you are sending Saori blessings to the trees and ocean….. yes, lovely, indeed!
