A top for me....for a change...November 23, 2014
Today I am taking part in an Aussie hosted series called 'Constant Change'. It is a series hosted by two of my lovely blogging friends - Jenya from While she was sleeping and Renee from Nearest the pin.
When I first got the invitation from Jenya and Renee, I planned on starting and finishing Emily's 'big girl' quilt as she will soon be graduating from her cot into a big bed. But I did not have enough time, and instead I decided to make something for myself for 'a change'.
I am very used to being behind the camera but not so comfortable in front! Juliette took some of these photos, but I needed Stefan to step in for a couple! One thing about my wardrobe that has not changed in many years and that is that I live in jeans and tops/shirts and usually a pair of ballet flats. My wardrobe is also full of quite an array of cardigans - I have had a soft spot for them since I was a teenager.
I made this pattern up - traced from a top I already own. It is like a smart T- shirt. There is a curved hemline which dips down further at the back. the back has a small yoke and the neckline is faced. The fabric is a lovely linen blend from Miss Matatabi. This particular print is not longer available, but you can see another colourway here. I have worn this shirt two days in a row and it feels really nice to wear something I have made.
Thank you Jenya and Renee for the inspiration and for having me!!
