Just call me "Stretchy"....

After spending the weekend at Sewjourn and some very clever ladies, I was determined to make one of Nikki's stretchy (no pattern, just cut and wing it) tops made in the blink of an eye and for the total sum of $6.00!
So, this is what I whipped up this morning. It took me longer than it took Nikki to make hers but after some adjusting to the size I think it turned out really well.
It looks a bit grey in the photos but it is black with little tiny sparkles through it.
Thanks Nikki, for giving us some tips and tricks and for making us realise that an overlocker should not be something to be frightened of!!
Right, next is the no pattern, just cut and wing it skirt......

Thankyou for popping over to my new blog and leaving a lovely comment, and making me feel welcome into blogland. Its all still a bit daunting.

You have done a GREAT job on the top, and all before lunch! Can't wait to see the skirt.
