|The pattern I used|
I used a New Look pattern - design E and used fabric from a men's shirt, not sure if you can see the thin red stripes very clearly? See the pocket on the back - thought that added an interesting if impractical detail! Good place for some secret chocolate as Hilary from Lemon Loves suggested!
And am really pleased with how it has turned out. The bits I had to finish off were sewing in the sleeves and adding a popper and button at the back as the trim I used wasn't actually long enough to make a loop so I improvised. It didn't actually take me that long to finish once I put my mind to it and now I have a new top to wear! Hurrah!
|Front and back of finished top! Hurrah! hmm seems to highlight the fact I've been eating way too make cakes though...! oops! Say why aren't I smiling in this picture?!! ;-0|
Yippee! Going back to simple sewing projects has given me a perk to get back on the sewing horse.
How many unfinished jobs have you got lying around? - don't panic - don't mean that to overwhelm you - but why not pick one and finish it? It feels soooo good!
