In a ridiculous moment of self-deception, I managed to convince myself that this was the right skirt to make. It fails on two levels. Winter white?? On me?? Then there is the style. I have a waist and hips, wrap ANYTHING does NOT work for me.
For those less curvy, this pattern is BWOF 09-2011-110 and it's a lovely little skirt made from a piece of lovely winter white wool. The pattern calls for a facing but given the coarse nature of this wool, I knew it would be irritating so I lined it edge to edge with some leftover white bemberg. I'm happy with the skirt but it just doesn't work on my curvy body.
Feeling slightly disillusioned, I went on to make some palate cleansing knit tops, which aren't very exciting at all, but will be useful.
This first one is BWOF 02-2013-127 which I've previously made as a dress (I think that was style 128 but with long sleeves??)
I like the gathers on the sleeve seam. It's a nice little difference on a basic long sleeve tshirt.
This one is BWOF 09-2012-130 and whilst it's not my favourite knit top, come winter I will be glad of something a little different to my usual plain long sleeve t!
This shows the gathers on the side, which I rather like. The fabric is kinda cute. I've yet to read it to see what it actually says! It's a really soft and drapey rayon knit and will be lovely to wear.
