An Urge To Sew

I've been helping the student with her sewing project again this week and it made me get the urge to sew.

I braved the spiders and visited my attic for patterns and fabric.  The simple pattern I decided to use came free with a magazine a while back.  In hindsight, I wish I had opted for another one as this one had many issues that I had to overcome).  

I fell in love with the fabric when I visited Fabricland in Bristol last year.  I had no idea what I would use it for, but knew that I had to have some, so in true crafters tradition purchased three metres.

The pattern was originally for a dress, but I decided that I would get more use out of it if I changed it into a tunic top (lopping 4" off the hemline).  I also added small slits to the seam/hemline to ease movement.  The neckline would not sit correctly, so I decided against what the pattern suggested and did my own thing.
