thats gorgeous..I must get that book..you've made fab things from it....
I'm liking that fancy stitch on the straps!
I read your sewing posts thinking, "Thank heavens for LW, she makes sewing seem completely doable". Then I get to your pic of stitched flowers and fall out of my chair.
It's beautiful! I do have that book so might have to have a go at making one for myself!
It's very pretty. I've just bought some material to have a go at this pattern. Any tips on altering the size?
Sue, I don't have an email address for you, but hopefully you'll check back here. One of the reasons I like this book is that her clothes all seem to fit well on me with minimal adjustments. But you can try the top on before you attach the bodice, and take it in if it is a little baggy. You can chop it shorter when you hem as well if need be.HTH.
Oooh, how lovely! made in an evening as well, you clever girl. I love the fabric and the buttons. You're an inspiration my dear!x
Oooh, lovely. I've been thinking about making something similar (which should guarantee the sun goes in).
it's gorgeous ! I bought some lovely fabric today, but it may be winter before I dare to cut into it.....
All those tops you've made are so gorgeous. I think I need that book!
What neat stitching...you are so clever!
I like the use of the fancy stitch. I've never used the ones on my machine despite being bowled over by having them when I bought the darn thing. Also think I ought to pay more attention to this book that's been sitting in my cupboard for a loooong time.
Gorgeous. Do you find this book useful????? Or are you in fact Heather Ross...
Beautiful. I love that fabric and the fancy stitch on the straps compliments it so well.
That looks so good on you - and I love all the little details too.
It's gorgeous, really.
