I am inordinately and unreasonably obsessed with this Japanese website. Scroll down the "Pickups" - there are many pages of them. The aesthetic of loose, piled on layers really appeals to me, even though it really seems as though the weather would be have to be set on 70 permanently for this style. In any case, I think these clothes are permeating my mind because I have just reconned these:



This used to be a pretty boobtastic belly shirt, shirred under the bust, and way too revealing. But the material is the softest jersey of this lovely lavender color, so I couldn't let it go. Instead, I used the drawstring casing that used to be the shirring to add length to the straps. I put the serged inside on the outside on purpose, to add some detail.



This is made from a men's button-down shirt and two men's tees. I totally love it, even though it shows multiple signs of being handmade. Can't wait for it to warm up a little bit around here.



This is made from a men's button-down shirt in response to my deep unnatural jealousy of all thing smocky. I can't decide - with the pocket or without?

these are truly lovely, any hints on how you did the second one would be wildly appreciated,
ps it doesnt look home-made from here.

I prefer the cleaness of the no pocket look, but that is just me,
fantastic work, hugely inspiring!

I love them all, but my favorite is the center one.  I think signs of being handmade are what make handmade things special!  Perfection is for machines.

I agree, you have to keep the pocket but it looks like it could do with a top stitched down cuff on the top of it, simple to do and you could probably do it with only undoing the first few stitches on the pocket if you didn't want to remove it.

My fave is the second mens shirt top, I have to make one of these babies.
