So I’ve had this fabric in my stash box for a year or more now. Has taken me this long to decide what to do with it.
Once again I only had a metre, well tell a lie, I bought 1.5metres but the fabric is only 110cm wide, so I had to fold it in half horizontally instead of vertically. The stripes should run vertically, but as theres no stretch whatsoever in this crepe type fabric, it doesn’t matter which way the fabric goes, if that makes sense?
I am very happy with my umpteenth Marshmallow tunic, but can’t help feeling it looks better on Gertie than it does on me!
The white stripes are actually more of a cream than they look here, look very white in the pics.
Have to say I didn’t even pretend to try and pattern match the stripes. I can’t be doing with that kind of headache!
Its not a perfect make, but I’m happy.
I think it would have looked better with sleeves, but I really didn’t have enough fabric for that. So you do what you gotta do.
I’m off on holiday in May, so I’m hoping for the weather to be warm enough to wear it then.
