First of all I finished up this pair of high-waisted skinny, slouchy pants. Sorry about the crappy mirror shots but I am too lazy and too busy to waste time messing with a tripod. You'll have to wait for the SWAP shots now! These are BWOF 03-11-119 and are made from the same fabric as the skirt from last week. The line drawing makes them look more slim than they are but the pictures from the magazine and this one from the website shows that they really are a little more slouchy. I hated them at first, but I actually quite like them now.
Next up I made this top, which is BWOF 05-10-129. I love, love, love this top way more than I had expected. I first made this here and I loved the first version but I felt it could use a few alterations. I lengthened the bodice by 2.5cm and I lengthened the peplum by a further 2.5cm. I left the patch pockets off because I hate them and I think the top still works without them.
This is a close up of the fabric that may not show in the other photo. It's a slightly textured linen with a gold sheen on some of the threads. This is a record for me; I bought a piece of fabric and sewed it almost immediately! It was from Spotlight, ironically. Have I mentioned that the only fabric shop in the WHOLE OF TASMANIA is Spotlight??
I am rather fond of this fabric, even though I usually dislike wearing linen. Of course, this top also has one of my
mistake design feature mirror image labels.
Back to packing while I decide what to sew next. I have some animal print ...
