And the bad taste keeps coming ...

I've been invited to a christmas lunch tomorrow. The price of admission is a Hawaiian shirt.
I had this fabric in my stash although I have absolutely no idea where it came from. It's been there so long that it's faded in lines where it was folded, but I expect that liberal application of champagne will prevent anyone from noticing. I made this from BWOF 01-08 whatever it was I made in broderie anglaise last week - the pattern was on the table so I used it. I used the square stand from the long sleeve version and left off the collar completely. I eyeballed where to trim the long sleeve to make it short sleeve, but I made them a little too long. Once again, the champagne will take care of that.
This is what Molly will be wearing and I'm ashamed to say it's RTW.
Wishing you all a safe and happy christmas. SWAP sewing will commence in earnest on Monday.

Another lovely blouse and Molly looks gorgeous in her RTW. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas Day and a successful Boxing Day, the pickstitching on my dress has stalled, too much wine :)
