Don't know what came over me - change of season? too much pulp fiction? Anyway, I set off for a material shop this morning that I saw offered $10 off if you mentioned their ad, and bought up large on what appears to be mostly Italian fabric - yum!! Softly glinting or textured or drapey or knotted. . .
Made this high waisted drapey thing which can be worn over skirts such as the one above. It pulls in a little at the front and has a wobbly hemline. I like just cutting out on the ground after rudimentary drawings have been done. What a relief these two came out. (Not without some sweaty moments and a few unpickings of seams!)
This I almost gave away halfway through - it felt like just an old sack sewing it, but it looks and feels okay on. Like the alternative shiny fabric collar, and the paua buttons. The back drops down a bit, and needs a bit more work. That's a t-shirt forming the 'sleeves'. This one can be worm over any of those midlength sleeved t-shirts through winter. Finally, something NOT off-the-rack!
