Polka Dot Camisole.

I found myself sewing a camisole from this gorgeous fabric. Who knew polka dots were so addictive?

I drafted this myself. And when I say drafted I mean I used my easy fit block, threw caution to the wind and cut a low v-neckline, crossed my fingers and it worked out ok. Unlike the other top I made in this fabric, I cut this on the bias and what a difference it made! I much prefer the vertical direction of the print.

Observe.

This was fabric gifted by the lovely Rosie of DIY Couture so, here is my homage to the DIY Couture photo style.

 

I’ve worn this quite a bit, if the weather would just sort itself out and commit to spring, I’d wear this more often! I might even wear it tomorrow on my 30-something-something-ninth-cough birthday.

Sewing and assorted nonsense. For reasons that escape me, I left the sunshine and beaches of Australia for the crisps and glitter of London 12 years ago. I now live in the middle of some kind of feline drop-in centre in the East London. I was lucky enough to learn from two talented and creative women, my mum and my nonna Mieta. Mostly I sew for the sheer love of making things. And I don't think I can stop. Email over here ------> smittenness@gmail.com

    The direction of the print does make a big difference … but I like them both :-)
