The cowl that I made earlier today was cut on the bias, so used up a lot of the fabric. I only purchased 1.5 metres of fabric, so I guess I made this little top out of probably half a metre.
I traced off the medium for this vest, but when I tried to fit the pattern pieces on the fabric it was just a little short of fabric. As this fabric has spandex in it, I decided to fold the centre front and back line over reducing the width by approximately 1" and thought I have nothing to lose - if it was really too small I could give it to my daughter.
Thankfully, she won't get it. This top is great and I can't recommend it enough, especially with this type of jersey fabric. Feels wonderful on and well worth the £10 a metre price tag. I spent £15 and managed to get two wonderful tops out of it.
No more sewing tonight - I sat with a bunch of work colleagues this week, 3 of which had flu type symptoms - guess what? I don't feel very well. Typical when I have a 14 hour flight coming up tomorrow evening.
More tomorrow (not later).
