Thank you sooooo much for your messages, they really have warmed our soul this week.
I buried myself in a little sewing to keep me busy. A top which kept morphing into different things. It ended up as a useful layering tunic.
However, it started life as a self drafted fold neck top but it was too generous and I ended up with a sack including saggy sleeves!
So I made ties for the shoulders which pulled in the neck hole and changed the sleeve shape to give a narrower profile. I wasn't for giving up.
Better, but still too big in length and lacking in shape.
Ah, I see, it needed a tie waist. A really nice tunic to layer up for winter. I got there in the end. The fabric is from Minerva, it is a stretch nylon jersey with a great drape. I also made a Bettine Dress by Tilly and the Buttons from the same fabric a while back and I have worn it many times, the fabric does not need ironing - maybe that is why I have worn it so much!
Love to all you fabulous people out there.
