    Your jumper is stunning! I really love it & want to say you look very slick in it. I showed my mom who thinks with a statement knecklace in wood would make it boho chic. Its awesome.

      Thanks so much Izbott and your mom, much appreciated! Its a fantastic pattern, and I would say that in stretch jersey it fits really well. I will defo take nicer photos in summer with a boho background lol and with statement pieces to cement the look. It would suit a resort I’m thinking, maybe not the office hahaha. xx

    Morning from a cold ireland!! I saw your status about binding. Bought a bias binder maker from eBay really cheap. It was about five pounds. They had three sizes and I got the largest.It really is so easy to use and produces great bias binding. I went mad when i first bought it and everything had bias binding on it lol. II copied one of my daughters dresses for her and all the strap detail is bias binding.I was so pleased with myself lol. I wish knew how to link a past project to show you but it’s in my studio and is a red animal print dress. Enjoy your day xx

      Thanks so much Mary; sounds crisp! Thanks for reminding me about those bias making gadgets, i totally had forgotten about using one. I went and retrieved my metal one at the bottom of my tools and notions box.. a non mechanical basic medium sized one, and it did a quick job of it, really did make the job easier. So that saved lots of binding frustration lol. Xxxx
