Something for me!

I don’t sew much for me. In fact I’ve only made one thing and I’ve never worn it.
I felt I had to be brave and try again. I really like this pattern and fortunately it’s in one of the few Ottobre magazines that I own.
The fabric I picked up in the local Op Shop so figured I couldn’t go wrong. It’s a heavy synthetic polyester mix by the feel of it with lovely drape. Not my usual type of fabric, I’m more of a natural fibres girl.
I went with my high bust measurement to choose size which is something I read somewhere about Ottobre patterns and I’m really happy with the fit.

My son was the photographer so……
