This morning it was a bit too cool not to wear a jacket but for the purposes of showing the ruching on this top, I’ll show you the jacket another time. The jacket needs to be taken in so it’s on my ‘to-alter’ list in between my new current winter projects.
This morning’s mug is from an ABC Store in Hawaii. I bought the first mug 7 years ago but last year a colleague was visiting the islands and she bought me two more mugs and just recently a senior colleague had the exact same mug on his desk. I know ‘small things…”.
The top is Butterick 5562 and I’ve used this fabric on the bits and pieces top last week.
The ruching was done using Seams great but I would now use skinny elastic for the ruchng for more wearing movement.
The pants McCalls 2874, are a wool blend and they are very scratchy so I’m going to practice lining these pants because Renata, Sharon and Wendy swear by them. I’m now very convinced.
I just completed part of my Jalie Jeans. The back pockets and front pockets are done. Tomorrow I’ll tackle the front zip. Talk soon…
Ooh – great top – and the colour is fabulous on you!
