Well, that's a good reason to have plenty of backup fabric on hand, eh? Isn't this a wild print? (for me anyway). I bought it from EmmaOneSock quite a while back and I wasn't sure if I liked it. Today I fell in love with it.
I am really starting to like wearing tank tops on the weekends, or layered during the week for work.
It was a fiddly bit of work because I had to piece it together in the front. Since I had enough, I went ahead and doubled the front panel. You can really see the shape of the piecing (like a reverse princess seam) when viewing from inside out.
When I tested my first seam on the coverhem, there was a pronounced tunnelling effect. I decided it was a happy accident - because it gave a bit more stability. This is some very stretchy fabric. The neckline, armscye and hems are just a simple turned over hem, but the tunnelling makes it look like I used a binder. Neato trick.
When I look at these pictures I think I might go get a real haircut. It's been over a year since a professional touched my hair and I think it's time :)
