I have sewed two items from my planned wardrobe capsule, however one has ended up in the bin.
The planned camel ponti skirt was supposed to be a simple tube skirt, but the rayon blend ponti in a light colour showed every lump and bump. I tried to add a lining but had more problems... was not worth spending any more time on it.
Since then a success - the cream brown stripe boat neck top. I used my TNT Burda 02-2009-108. The fabric was a rayon blend (I think) marked as a Japanese fabric from Spotlight. The quality is lovely, however the fabric has a very strong recovery and it pulls up a little at the sleeve head.
I am not sure if I made this top again from a strong fabric like this, maybe I should add a bit more width to the shoulders.
This top has fit right into my current wardrobe. Love it when that happens. I also love that it coordinates with my Jalie vest. The wool jersey vest I made last year and love to wear but it's strong colour has made it a bit of an orphan. Now I feel it has found a top that can handle the colour.
I have worn this top twice now and just pulled it off the washing line. I found it had found a friend. A striped moth thought my top was the perfect camouflage...
Every time I tried to shoo it off, it just flew right back. Anyway more knitting in my next post and hopefully a shirt for my eldest will be finished soon as well... Ciao!
