Here is my first attempt at making something to wear (I'm usually a knitter)  Cheesy

I loved this fabric and had to get it on special order from an Ebay seller, as nowhere in the UK stocks it (why?Huh)  Roll Eyes

I was pleased how the zip and darts in the back went, that was a first too.

I've used my overlocker (erm, 'serger' to you US ladies??) and have finally figured out how it works!

Shame it's far too cold here in the UK to wear it atm, roll on summer!










I think you may be seeing more of me on here!  Smiley

The fit is really nice, and I love the fabric. It's really unique in a good way. Well done.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Wow! I thought you guys knew all about Alexander Hanry fabrics!
I thought I was catching up from last year!! LOL!!!  Cheesy

It's called 'Inked' in 'multi' colourway, it's also known as 'tattooed ladies' and you can buy it online, but it seems to be mostly in the US, as I got mine from a UK ebay seller.

HTH.

Thanks for the comliments btw  Smiley
