The "Mighty Aphrodite" from Hot Patterns made my must sew list.
Here it is in a very lightweight rayon knit from Metro Textiles in NYC. I am wearing the shirt with blue pants to show the contrast. I plan to wear it with less contrasting (khaki) colored pants. The knit is so sheer that one can see the color of the pants underneath, here.
I think I like the draped sleeve a lot - the pattern shows one sleeve ruched (draped) and the other plain. The next version of this I make will be in black or purple, and I will make both sleeves draped.
I have seen this drawstring feature on clothing for years - first on Michael Stars T-shirts, and now it's everywhere. I think the drawstring trend might be slightly beyond its apex but I don't care. I love this feature!Thanks to my dear husband, Nick, for contributing (as always) his photographic skills. Nick is very good with his camera - uses exposure settings, flash, and so on, to get the best photo possible.
