Top Two

Because I liked the first one so much, I thought another would be in order. This was the fabric that I wanted to make the wrap around skirt in actually, but I didn't have enough. I have showed this one with the button detail on the sleeve, which brings them in a bit, so I don't look like a reject from the Flying Nun. (You might need to be very old like me to remember this series starring Sally Field!) I used this really cute red and white ribbon which I sewed in at the ends instead of tying. It sort of holds the gathers where you want them better

Bit of a scary shot of me. Please excuse Junior Busy's room. I have given up yelling at him to tidy it. He's back at school Friday, so I might get it half decent!!!

Ohhh, I thought the first one was super cute but I wouldn't like to have to choose between the two. Gorgeous Liz - hope the weather behaves and you get months more wear out of them this summer. Junior Busy's room is not so bad - I know a couple of girls who could give him a run for his money in the untidiness stakes.

21 year old daughter? She takes the biscuit in room grunge. And normally the biscuit will be found lurking somewhere under her bed! She is now flatting so I don't have to look at it, and we have a much better relationship!
