I was in Sydney recently and noticed the ladies wearing big colourful blouses with either tights or slacks. After I came home I drew a pattern and made a top similar to those I had seen.
|The colours are quite bright and gaudy in good light.|
Everything seems to worked out reasonably well. It looks rather like a short muu-muu, but that is just what I saw on the streets of the big city.
Hopefully I will be wearing this top with some black tights at the yarn bombing event tomorrow.
