This is really and truly the first item of clothing that I am proud of
. Having such beautiful fabric to work with made me think and think some more before I committed the sewing machine to any part of it. I am most proud of the sleeves as it is a very
long time since I last tried to do this-but with much tacking and pinning they came out beautifully first time.
I can't do justice to the colour in this picture but it is the most glorious shade of emerald green-and right off my swatches
All I have to do now is to get DH to take me somewhere special to show it off...
