Celebrate September - National Sewing Month

There's no better way to celebrate our love of sewing than to sew something.

This year, for National Sewing Month, I'm introducing another Made in a Day project.
I was challenged with how best to name this new top without becoming too wordy.  So let's just call it a Blouson Cap Sleeve Top.  The big foldover pleat is actually added at center front neck point, but then tapers down to nothing at the hem level.  It's super simple to design from your SFD Dress Kit.  And of course it gives you the same good fit no matter what position you choose to transfer the bust dart to.

As you can see, there are a number of variations to choose from.  And if you don't like cap sleeves, or you want to make this more for cool-weather wear, then simply don't make the changes for the cap sleeve and add a sleeve in the length you desire.

I hope you enjoy drawing and sewing this new design as much as I did.

Happy Sewing,
