Made By Me!

Other than sewing my cushion covers and Ashleigh's memory throw before Christmas, my last sewing was back at school.
(And that was far too many years to mention)

So after purchasing all this lovely fabric I knew I had to finally bite the bullet and make something wearable.
Well, I hoped it would be wearable anyway.

And the first result is this top:

Far from perfect.
It should have just crossed over but wasn't quite covering my boobies, hence the pink fabric to save my dignity.
That will teach me for not using a proper pattern.

But it works and its wearable so win win in my book.

The total cost £4.
Not bad really.

Now lets see if the rest of my sewing can be an improvement on this.
