Description

First make of the Banksia pattern by Megan Nielsen. This turned out okay, the only modification I made to the pattern was to move the bust dart placement. I should have used thinner bias tape on the neck like the pattern states, but this was what I had in my stash. This fabric is a cute bird print I picked up on some travels and I really love the print, but it’s a horrible polyester that is already falling apart :( Lesson learned with cheap fabric! I do love this pattern though and plan on making more!

    Ha ha, the cats can’t get enough of any of my fabric! I feel like I can never make too many tops, they’re so much faster than dresses and I wear them way more often!
