It's a gorgeous day today, and I want to sew, but I can't resist sitting outside and soaking up the rays. I'm wearing my new Hot Patterns Weekender Sunshine top (MMM day 20). This has been sitting in my UFO pile for over a year so I'm happy I've crossed one more item off the list.
I've cut a size 12 in the tunic length, but omitted the waistband casing. I like the length of the cap sleeves, but the neckline is lower and wider than I was expecting. I've also found that the neck band is a little floppy at the centre front. Maybe it stretched a little during construction but it feels like it needs a wedge taken out. I didn't have any matching overlocker thread so it was constructed entirely on my sewing machine and then I pinked the edges, entirely unnecessary but I like the way it looks. I can definitely see myself making up a few more of these.
I don't think I'm going to make my self imposed quilt deadline, but it will definitely be posted out this coming week.
