i'd been itching to sew myself something & found time to cut this pattern out last week & then with fitting in a little sewing time where i could, i've made myself this lovely top
i used the 'stylish dress book' again, this time opting for pattern b, i'd stashed this fabric away ages ago, i have no idea what it is, but it feels like a soft 'almost but not quite' brushed cotton & the second best thing about it is it only cost me 50p from a charity shop (the first being i absolutely adore the colours & print)
i didn't have enough of the fabric to make the sleeves as they are in the pattern (i had a small nagging voice in the back of my head telling me to make something sweet for little O) but i was so determined for this to be mine (as little O is growing so very quickly) i just went with it & made my own version of the sleeves,
& it works, i love it (so much so that i've had it on all weekend) my nearest & dearest even asked me if i'd really made it myself! (how could he doubt me) i was so pleased to tell him that it had only cost me 50p!
which on another note is a good thing as we've had an offer accepted on the house (trying not to get too excited but fingers crossed)
