That's the only way to describe this Amy Butler fabric I picked up at Amitie a few weeks ago - it really is quite lovely.
This is the little Ottobre top I said I was going to make - it's a great pattern - really quick and easy.
The only problem I had was that the buttonhole foot on my machine had a little trouble gripping at the top where the binding was.
This resulted in the buttonholes being unevenly spaced - so next time I will do the buttonholes horizontally I think.
I have made another one of these in some of my beloved Erin McMorris yellow birds fabric but gifted it before I remembered to take a pic! It was the same colour combo as this bird top I made last year. (scroll down a bit and you'll see it!)
If you've made one post a link in comments and share it around - I'd love to see it.
I find it really interesting to see how different people interpret the same pattern.
I have at least one more of these planned and it will be quite different again.
This is quite big on Miss G - more like a tunic or smock - but looked sweet worn over some long pants today and in time will fit her less like a dress and more like a shirt.
Now at last, a sneaky peek of an outfit I am working on for the EB kids clothing swap.
You may assume I am making for a boy - I don't that is saying too much given the fabric choices.
There will be a 'top' and a 'bottom' in these fabrics. (brown cotton drill,striped jersey, blue fine wale cord and feature print with cars and animals).
The cord is a gorgeous colour - more like the first pic than the second in true colour I think.
Stay tuned for more later.
