The pattern is from Ms. Naomi Ito herself and is a free pattern she designed specifically for this fabric. You can get the pattern pdf instructions from her website here. Lizzy House had already made one of these so she helped me draft up the pattern using these instructions.
The design of this over-sized tee is simple enough that it was easy to draft - even with the instructions in Japanese! There isn't a lot of room for error with this one-size-fits-most piece as it is made simply with two pieces of fabric and 2 pocket pieces.
I choose to make bias binding out of the fabric itself to close up the neck. The arms and bottom hem were done by turning under the fabric. This top came together quickly and I love the result. The weight of the fabric is going to be great for crisp warm months and the over-sized dolmen style looks great with skinny jeans or leggings. We can't wait to see what you make up with these amazing fabrics!
Can you tell me how many yards you needed?! I just love Nani Iro and really love your shirt!
Thanks! I used 1 1/2 yds for this top
