A couple of weeks ago I found $10 on the ground. Now I can't justify the buying of new fabric with my current budget but I found FREE MONEY. Add to that I was travelling on the train line that went right past Cabramatta and, well, the rest is history.
I scored this great deep blue ponte for $5 to make myself another long sleeved top for winter. Boring but necessary. My remaining RTW tops for winter are all sporting holes and as I said in a previous post so too are some of my handmade long sleeved tops. So I've been working on replacing some basics in my wardrobe to get me through the cold mountains winter.
Oh, you'd like to see the shoulder accents? Sure thing.
This fabric was pretty nifty in that it had this great light grey colour on the reverse. I had initially wanted to applique some geometric shapes on the shoulders with it but that was proving way too much like hard work. So instead I just made another version of my Faux Leather Accent Top. I did actually cut out a pocket and positioned it on the fabric when I tried it on. The word boobpatch wandered through my head and decided not to leave no matter where I positioned it so the top remains boobpatch-less.
This top was made with my trusty Burdastyle Lydia pattern which I've made too many times to count.
Here's a photo of me looking smug in my new top. Hooray for warm, snuggly, functional and FREE clothing!
