Today’s outfit, inspired by the earthy tones I see around me as autumn nears its end. I sewed the short top myself, actually intending to make a sort of brassiere that I could wear underneath clothes because I am sick of trying to find a bra that fits (and anyway my breasts are quite small and bras just make them look bigger than they are, which I think is really unnecessary). It turned out this top looks great on top of other clothes, too! It is made of linen, and is reversible, meaning that I can also wear it inside out. The other side is natural undyed linen. It fastens at the back with lacing, making it fully adjustable, and I have put plastic boning in panels on each side of the lacing to strengthen it. I am not ashamed to say that I am thoroughly pleased with myself at being able to make this on the first try (I have never sewn a top before. only simple dresses and skirts), and think I have just made myself a new favourite garment!
