Ugh! Awful! Disaster!
In my mind’s eye I saw my lovely bird fabric in this top worn with my white linen trousers.
The pattern came from a copy of this German magazine I had recently won as part of a prize.
I do not have any knowledge whatsoever of the German language. I sat with Google, trying to translate enough to work out whether a seam allowance had been included or not. I figured not, thinking they couldn’t have possibly fitted it onto this sheet.
So I added 1/2” all the way around.
I think this may have been my downfall. I cut out the smallest size, once I had found the relevant pieces.
Ugh! Awful! Shapeless on Lola and shapeless on me.
My enthusiasm for this top has quite gone.
I haven’t the inclination to put it right. I shall recycle the fabric and together with the metreage I have left see if I can squeeze a Myrtle out of it.
Something I truly do enjoy wearing.
Sometimes you just have to walk away.
Love, Lucie xx
