So there was the white test version first with my self-drafted pencil skirt. This test version doesn't count as one of the final 3.
Then there were 2 Knitwit fabrics in animal prints that had to be made up. They have a winter feel to them and this was the perfect way to use them and keep cosy.
Finally here's a Pitt Trading piece that I bought a while ago.That made 3 tops in 3 days.
And then I decided to make the white print with a remnant piece from a couple of years ago. Yes. I can't count. I officially made 5 winter tops and they covered my winter shape too.
The side ruching was done on my overlocker, now that I know how to use it more since attending the overlocker workshop earlier this year. And that's as complicated as this top is. I can cut it out and sew it up within 2 hours.
The summer versions will be a bonus to make and smaller because I'm training for a triathlon that's on this Saturday. The winter padding is coming off. And summer has arrived early but not the mozzies, yet.
