I just realized it’s been a really long time since we’ve had nani IRO at the workroom. I’ll try not to let that happen again. This fabric just makes people happy.
It seems to be a tradition of mine to make this particular pattern from nani IRO. The very first version I made was exactly SIX years ago!
I love this simple top, it’s so easy to wear and incredibly comfortable. My favourite detail is definitely the sleeves. I love a puffy sleeve! I really like how this sleeve is two parts. If you’re making this pattern from the untranslated version of Stylish Dress Book, this can be the one tricky part. When you’re tracing out the pattern piece for the lower sleeve, you need to add in 10 cm to the width of the piece to add the fullness.
This collection has so many fun pops of neon, perfect for the coming winter months when things get very grey. I always find myself choosing brighter prints when the days get shorter. There is more nani IRO on the way for the new year, it’ll be a good mid winter pick me up!

That’s just a perfect combination and looks gorgeous on you! You’re right in that Nani Iro does make people happy and definitely the right prescription for the dark wintery days!
I hope to see your 101 Trousers soon.

This is definitely a simple silhouette, but by no means a simple top. Love the color of the fabric and if last week was any indication of this winter, then it’s going to be brutal!
It’s beautiful Karyn.
You always do so well choosing styles that feature the fabric, and nani iro is most definitely worth featuring!
Love this top! I think I am adding it to my list right away, maybe to the top of the list!
ps, what pattern is this top? I can’t seem to find it..

This is really lovely. I love Nani Iro so I know what you are saying about the wrinkles. I think you chose the perfect style for nani iro – those wrinkles won’t matter when you are wearing it everyday!

This is gorgeous and makes me look at this pattern again. The right fabric can elevate a simple shape so well!

Lovely blouse and fabric! I have a Stylish Dress Book, but it’s the one that says “Clothing for Everyday Wear.” is this pattern from that book or one of the earlier ones?
[…] me. I love reaching into my closet and pulling out any of my many versions – most of them in nani IRO double gauze. I just love the silhouette and those cute puffy sleeves! This was my first time trying the new […]
I am making the same blouse, using the amazing nani IRO Fuccra rakuen… Although I have the translated version of the book, I didn’t pay enough attention when tracing the pattern…
I noticed something was wrong when I was trying to gather the lower part of the sleeve to match notches, but there was nothing to gather… 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 I can’t believe I messed up with my beloved fabric…
How I solved this? I ordered more fabric…. 🙁
