So its been a while, I’m sorry. I have neglected you my little blog. I’m here now to make amends.
Whilst browsing Fabric godmother a little while ago I came upon this unusual looking fabric
And promptly ordered 3metres of it. Its a roma jersey jacquard. Its quite textured and feels almost woolly, but its not. And unlike most jersey fabrics it does need to have the edges finished as it has a backing and I think the potential to fray. Besides that it was lovely to work with and I enjoyed making yet another trapeze top with it.
I used just over a metre for this top leaving me enough to hopefully make a dress out of it too. Would have had to use way more than a metre if I’d made a long sleeve version.
The above picture shows that the sleeve pattern piece is hanging off the end of the fabric.
Didn’t take long to make and I’m very happy with it. The fabric feels lovely to wear and I think would look good in a sweatshirt type top. I must have a go at making one, one day.
My Husband seems to quite like it too which is nice.
