It is made from viscose jersey and puts me in mind of a drunk friend I once walked home with on a skiing holiday in Austria in 2001, how so? It was floppy and fluid and unpredictable. You did not know which way it was going to slide next. Ultimately she was my friend so I stuck with it - same with the fabric. Big Sis really wanted it and chose it from a picture online so I had to persevere.
It has a drape and it falls so well when she spins around (so did my friend, enough now!) and she really liked to spin like the girl in the picture. When you choose online (myfabrics.co.uk) you don't get to feel the fabric and they didn't describe it as my friend Rachel so I had no idea what to expect.
Yes, that is the frying pan I burnt this morning!
It was a very simple pattern made from two batwing-esque pieces for the front and back, two cuffs and some ruffles around the neck.
I don't have an overlocker machine but one would have improved my finishing but tipped me over the edge plug wise in the spare room. So I am happy with it.
I know it is cold sweetie, hang on, nearly finished...
It is too long in the arms with the deep cuffs but as they are double fabric they turn back well. This is a garment with longevity. She can wear it as a tunic with the cuffs turned back and then as a top with the cuffs rolled down as she grows.
You can go in now, the cheque will be in your money box!
