One of the reasons I got into sewing and wanting to make my own clothing was purely due to the lack of good basics available, especially in my size.  I had seen much hype on the Inari within the online sewing community.  It looked sleek and simple, and most importantly long. I had slight issue with short sleeves as i hate showing my arms, but I am glad I ignored that and bought it anyways.

The packaging, as with all Named clothing Patterns is beautiful.  It is a pure white box with a label insert in Black and white.  Its printed on one big sheet and the instructions, they do recommend you trace, but I cut as that’s how i like to work.  The instruction book is simple and sleek, very graphical and easy to read.  I loved unwrapping this pattern and was just SEW excited to get started on it.

Overall, it is a very easy pattern to make, i did add a bit extra to the body as I wanted it loose and was worried i may reveal some lumps and bumps. The material I used was a very fine Jersey in multi colour.  As much as I needed some lighter summer basics, I am looking forward to using a stiffer fabric for my next attempt (of which there will be many I am sure)  The length is just perfect for me, although I am not sure I can pull off the length of the crop version, I might give that one a miss to be honest.

I would highly recommend this pattern to anyone, Its great for a beginner that is making the transition form high street to Me Made as it looks like it was picked of the peg at Topshop or H&M.

I am currently awaiting a quilted Jersey in white for my next attempt at this.
