    Well done – cowl looks fabulous. I’ve never tried a Lekala, but I did download one…I heard they’re pretty good for fit!

    Nice top! These types of tops are always flattering, versatile and comfortable. Not to mention, pretty easy to sew (with a slightly greater level of understanding and sewing intuition, as you clearly have). So many fabric options to make it in as well. Love it. -Stephanie
