When Quilters Make Garments: Nani Iro Jersey

My quilting needles have been bumping into the squishy-ness of cotton jersey lately. 

It feels like trying to nail jello to a tree when you compare it to the act of working with quilting cotton. 

The Alabama Chanin DIY skirt that I'm making is still on the front burner and it is progressing but it seemed like a tank top to match would be a fun project.  I cut out a corset top from the pattern in her book and made it with jersey Nani Iro that I got from awesome online shop Superbuzzy.

It's my own person Japanese twist on this cool process.  I have a few more alterations to make and I'm even toying with adding a few beads to it.  I might also put some of the gray fabric used on the skirt around the neckline and arm holes to tie it together. 
Either way, it's looking good but not done yet.

Can't wait to see the finished product. I've always been curious about Nani Iro fabrics.
