The Simplicity top is finished and the review is written.  I just needed pictures to add to the post and I was good to go.

Today we have had glorious sunshine which seemed to present a perfect opportunity to test drive my lovely new top at a local food festival.

Blasted iron was too hot (obviously nothing to do with me having it on the wrong setting)!

My immediate reaction was “thank goodness I have enough of this fabric to make another”.

Well, actually, that was my second reaction.  My first involved my expletives of choice.

Then I realised that a strategically placed design feature could probably save this top…and several hours work for me too!  So I’ve got it all pinned and ready to sew and will get back to you soon with the finished article.
