I understand I'm a bit late in jumping on this bandwagon...
but what a great pattern!!
The pocket design is genius (I'm not... it took me a while to work out how to put it together!) and it's very comfortable to wear.
Of course I've made a mistake somewhere in copying the pattern and messed up the band around the neck (I need a lesson in tracing... ) and had to do without but I've already worn it and it wasn't an issue. I also changed the sleeves; because of the simpler neckline I felt the sleeves needed to be simpler too.
The fabric is a gorgeous shot linen bought very cheaply at the Malvern quilt fair a few weeks back. The problem was... that it was soooooo damn slippery. Is it the nature of shot fabric? of linen? I don't know, what I know is that the thing moved whichever way it fancied it and that cutting a straight line was a nightmare, never mind curves!
A lot of expletive were uttered.
The clouds are moving really fast today and the light keeps changing so the colour of the first image is the most accurate. Isn't it just perfect?
And it fits too!
(ok, I know it's June, but it's not warm out there and I hate cold feet!)
