Fleece and silk tops
Green silk crepe de chine top. The fabric wasn't quite wide enough to make a kimono sleeve top so I pieced it to add 'cuffs' to the sleeves.
Another top from the same pattern as the green one, but as it is narrower it looks more like dropped shoulders with sleeves. The silk habutai is what was left from the lining to the shibori dyed silk/viscose velvet from a while back.
A single sided fleece animal print. I copied an existing bought garment with dropped shoulders, a wide roll neck, and pockets.
All three garments were very quick to make, I cut them out one weekend and sewed then the next.
