I rescued the frill that had been put on upside down and hemmed the side vents, it took a few tries to get the straps in just the right place so they don't show the bra straps but that is always the case, am I right ladies?
I thought I would stand somewhere pretty then saw the cobwebs in the garage window! Oops.
The level is about the same front and back on the neckline.
Happy that the straps stayed covered though.
That side vent lets it hang a bit more freely.
The fabric was quite nice to work with some sort of cotton mix. I didn't use my overlocker for tidying inside seams just a zig zag stitch, sometimes I really can't be doing with the thread hungry nature of overlockers.
I have some more fabric big enough for a top just waiting to be transformed I will have to get to work on that. The only thing is I have used it twice before, once in a patchwork cushion and once in the runner here on the drawers in my hallway. Is it ok to match your soft furnishings? I am not sure but maybe I will give it a go. The fabric is very bright and I think that is probably why I haven't used it in a garment yet. Probably a simple top with no fussy fastenings will be best.
Today I have added a few new pictures to Pinterest from something I have been working on, I had them all saved then got around to adding them today. It is based around faith art, not for everyone I understand, that is why I haven't shared on here but I feel that sort of creativity could be used in connection with poetry or other inspirational works so maybe I will post on it another day in a non-biased way.
In relation to this I have treated myself to some new coloured pencils, Inktense they are called, very rich colours. I am considering this an end of School year gift to myself. The good thing is I ordered them then got a message saying they were going to give me a £6 refund! They must have gone on sale as they were £12.95 when I bought them, very good of them to honour it as I didn't know. They were from Amazon.
