I mentioned in this post that I have started working on my Evening Collection for the 2nd half of my SWAP.
My wardrobe has very little evening styled garments in it, and during the year I do have a number of dressy occasions to attend and this hopefully will reduce the mad sewing for an event for a while.
When Ann from Gorgeous Fabrics posted her Gala Top I quickly popped over to her online shop and found some fabric named Disco Glam Jersey – Bronze and just had to have it. Luckily my boss was in the USA at the time and he so kindly agreed to be my courier.
- taken out 1cm (3/8″) from the underarm to tapering back to nothing 4cm (1 1/2″) lower
- as the fabric has a bit of weight to it, I have added a ribbon across the back neck to keep it from falling off my shoulders.
