Here is the finished article, by the skin of my teeth and by some miracle following an all-dayer at the street party yesterday and considering my fragile state of being today!
I bought 3 metres of this lovely fabric with no plan in mind. Not exactly sure what it is. The man sold it to me as 100% cotton which I don’t disbelieve but I’m wondering if its batiste or swiss dot? It’s pleasantly sheer and has a lovely embossed polka dot all over, white on white. I think it makes a fine gypsy top even though I say it myself and indeed very reminiscent of my new romantic past!
I have entered it into the pool at Flickr for the Spring Top Sewalong 2011 hosted by (Made by) Rae. This is my first sewalong and hopefully the first of many. There are some lovely entries there already. Closing date is Monday 9th May so there is still time to make an entry . . . and feel free to cast your vote!
All credit to my clever 6 year old daughter for taking the photos.
Won’t babble on . . . my bed is calling! But rest assured, upon recovery, I will be making more of these with variations soon.
