Antrim, Co Antri...
This is a lovely top and seeing ellens gorgeous blue one just spurred me on. The neck bit did give me a lot of bother? I think i over worked it so in the end i Left it to fall into place by itself instead of trying to mould it into shape. I used scraps on the top as i wanted to test it out so i could make a dress. The dress is made as well and i love it. The trousers are my wonderful bottom half of burdas jumpsuit pattern. I have made four pairs so far and i love them so much, these are made with one metre of fabric and i’m tall. This was a lovely day out with my amazing mum. She is feeling a lot better thankfully. We took these photos in about 10 minutes as it was freezing out lol. The glasses where to make mum laugh . The castle part is the front gate, there is loads of the origonal castle left and the grounds are fabulous.. My town was buult round the castle. Once its warmer i will take more photos in the castle grounds x
