I bought this fabric on sale for €3 a metre, but it’s only 60cms wide (!) which prohibitted it’s intended use. After the success of my coffee date ruffle T-shirt, I decided to make a stab at creating a jumper, based on the same pattern. I haven’t figured out how to successfully bind neck holes yet, anyway I think this fabric would be too thick, so I zigzagged tape to the neck edge to prevent it stretching and left it raw. I also added four rows of ruffles, inspired by a beautiful and very expensive jumper my friend recently bought. I’m very excited about this top, as I don’t buy new clothes and can’t knit, so this means I am no longer reliant on charity shop finds to keep me warm!
