Wearing the new top

In reading through the PR Digest the other morning I read another review for the Kirsten Kimono Tee.  This reviewer had taken a deeper seam at the waist area to give the top a little more shape. She also curved the hemline-nice design idea for me to try later.  I decided I wanted to take a deeper seam at the waist line also.

After coming home from dinner with DH after work, I decided to sew the deeper waist seam and here are photos of me wearing the top.  My after work face look was not presentable for photos so I intentionally cropped off most of my head in the photos.  Besides I wanted to show off the top!

I plan to make one more of this top for my upcoming beach trip.

  1. Very nice top on you. I like the kimono style cap sleeve very flattering if you want to keep the top part of your arms covered. I also love the print of the fabric.

    1. I like to cover up some of my arm; with my age and less toned arms, I tend to cover up more and more.

  3. Pretty on you! I've reworked the Kirsten as well, more room through the torso to add some ease in the bustline. And I lengthened the sleeve to just past the elbow - Maria gives good directions on her website. Enjoy!

    1. I appreciate reading you lengthened the sleeve as I think that is a nice idea for this top for cooler weather.
