A Hawaiian Rasputin Homage

Yesterday I finished Butterick 5555- a new favorite. I improvised on the collar a bit- I felt like everything I have sewn in the last week was Mandarin-y, so I just faced the back edges and let it be done.

My esteemed photographer is not a good stylist- he didn’t tell me my collar was doing woodgy things behind my back while I perfected my Julie the Cruise Director pose, but hey, his labor is cheap-I keep him. My title refers to how I always see smocky style peasant tops and think Mad Monk- so this is my Mad Monk on vacation look. What’cha think?

  1. That was quick! What a fabulous top. That’s definitely a pattern I want to keep in mind. I haven’t sewn many blouses, but I think this would be a great top for the fall, and, really, for year round! I actually love your pose as well. Such confidence!
