Description

Had some scrap jersey left over and just messed around. This is made from a whole load of rectangles sewn together. shaped the lower rectangles to fit the hips and waist, the rest is just straight lines :-) Bit of hand sewing under the arms to stop it gaping and showing bra straps. quite comfy!

Material Notes

lightweight cotton jersey from tiaknight on ebay

    I like this pattern, I’m into the one-cut sleeve/bodice look!

    What I really like is that it doesn’t look like a bunch of scraps just thrown together. You did a nice job, and it fits you beautifully.
