Too many firsts!
- my first copy from an existing garment, not a pattern
- my first reversible
- my first crossover top
- my first ... no, second bit of gathering (I guess I did it once when I was 12 though it's a dim memory and I won't tell you how long ago that was)
- my first lap-and-fell seam. At least, I think that's what I ended up doing on the fly when the frilly bit wasn't working out....
Talk about biting off more than you can chew. I'm a mess. Anyhow, here it is. Apologies for dreadful photo quality, it's a camera phone. And thanks to hooseanna and onemoreseam for their help & advice on my thread in D&Q (where you can see the thing I was trying to copy). Which advice, possibly I should have taken a little more of.... I'm off to get a good stiff drink.
and here's a piccy on missy herself. Please excuse DH putting his socks on in the background.
