It took me half an hour to get dressed the other day!
Which is a hell of a lot of wasted time in anyone's book - usually it's two minutes and I'm done. The weather in my neck of the woods is somewhat strange...cold one minute, warm the next so dressing for Spring isn't always easy. I either have a lot of dark Winter clothes or a lot of Summer (40C heat) clothes and not many in between.
So, I rummaged through some old patterns of mine and decided on this top. I made it with some pretty Mary Rose fabric that I have had for a while. (I bought it very cheaply online so to use nearly two yards of it was OK! (It's $26AUD per yard in Australia! OUCH)!
It was an easy pattern to make up (Butterick 3524) and one that I have used a few times. This time around however, I did change a few things - I made the bust line lower (who ever made this pattern up must have had very tiny boobs - not that I have huge ones but a little more room there doesn't hurt), and I added quite a bit of length to it - I like things a bit longer - and I added the lace around the edges.
It's very girly and pretty and I love it!!
What other fabric can I cut into next....?
