When I saw this pattern I fell in love. I bought it and made it straight away but unfortunately my desperation to make it meant that I used entirely the wrong fabric as that was all I had enough of...
I used Fairtrade Organic Cotton from here.... It was far to heavy for the pattern and with it on I looked like I belonged in some type of institution, it was awful!
Out came some China Blue Dylon and the result was a bit better,
It went quite blotchy but it is ok. Luckily my stitching is all pretty straight because the thread didn't take the dye!
The top still looks pretty awful on (not the best camea angle either, I was using timer on the garden wall!) It looks too tight but doesn't feel it. I noticed in the picture of the yellow Josephine it also looks tight on the model..hmmmm. Hopefully by summer I will have shrunk a little and maybe get away with it but for now it is hidden away in my wardrobe
Oh well, I will try again in some more appropriate weight fabric and make the pattern adjustments for my odd shape and hopefully the results will be better!
Linking to some of these fab linky parties!
