The Akita top pattern by Seamwork is a one piece pattern. Something out of the ordinary. It's an easy sew with stable fabrics such as cotton or linen but definitely more tedious when sewing with georgette chiffon. It's part of my practice fabrics that I'd like to conquer this year. I'm getting the hang of it ... slowly but surely. I really like the turquoise / teal colours of the fabric and it's semi sheer quality.

The important consideration with this pattern is the fabric must be non directional for eg. a floral design with the flowers growing upwards. With the Akita top pattern the flowers will end up growing downwards on the back side. However that can be easily rectified by incorporating a shoulder seam if need be.
I will be conducting a sewing class on how to sew the Akita top on 23rd January 2016 (Saturday) at Yee Button. For more info please click my Facebook Event Akita.
