Me Made May Days 17 and 18
Day 18 and another refashioned charity shop item.
I found this really cute silk top in the charity shop and I had no idea if it would fit but it was so beautiful I decided to risk it. Here it is modelled by Merle. It was sooo close but just wasn't quite right.
There was quite a bit of excess fabric on each side seam. Look at the cute cat pattern!
Because it was a bit loose either side it made the back a bit saggy despite the elastic. I unpicked the sides, took them in a bit and re-inserted the zip. It now fits like a glove. I loved the ribbon that I found inside used for hanging the top up. So much so that when I had to cut it out I decided to tie it round my wrist - well it does say 'I love rosy cheeks!'
Also, just a quick picture of what I wore yesterday. It is a purchased top which I have embellished with a floral applique motif. The scarf is Me Made. I am having so much fun!
