as always happens before a big show, i have an idea for a garment, and it takes over my work, forcing it's way into my crowded making schedule. when my brother and Masayo were visiting with the baby, i had the chance to grill them on baby clothes. they told me that as often as they can, they buy wrap-front tops rather than over-the-head tops, as they are easier to get on a fussy, wiggly baby.
so, here is my dilemma:
colour/print band along the bottom, with a linen pocket overlapping both fabrics. the pocket will be pleated like the lower one. I think this one looks a little more sophisticated.
one of the front panels is fully cut in colour/print fabric. I like this as it is a little easier for me to make, but I think it looks a little too pyjama or baseball raglan tee like.
what do you think?
