So that curtain (?) fabric I wasn't sure about did me proud and I made myself a cute top using Portia's pattern on The Daily Stitch.
I was lacking any grown ups to take pictures so you'll have to make do with selfies and photos taken by little minions, it's the best we could do (and excuse the wet hair)!
I love that the top can be worn with either neckline at the front or back.
Though I do like how the slit shows off my tattoo!
I added some lace trim, which I think works nicely with the pale blue for a pretty vintage vibe (also makes me look a lot less pale!).
I love that the top is super comfy, slightly roomy (great for nursing!) and best of all when my husband got home he looked at me and said 'that's a pretty top!'. Success.
I spent the rest of the day humming 'the hills are alive...'
