summer sewing

I think the knitting craze kind of settled down for a while now, but there is always plenty of things to keep busy with.

For example in past few days I bought my first pattern and spent ages piecing it together…

2015-07-13 13.13.33 and the bloody things don’t always align properly, do they?

Then I made this little halter neck top…. proud because I managed to make this unaided and also cut the bias binding too 😀 (no fancy bias binding aids, just my scissors) Although, I think my technique of sewing the bias binding onto the arms for example could be improved…not bad for first attempt though 🙂

We’ll see if it fits anyone tomorrow 😀

    The fabric was given to me by a friend…I think she got it from Africa, but yeah, it is really lovely.
    The pattern is from burdastyle.com
