Have been doing a lot of craft sewing and sewing for my children lately, but this was just for me! This is actually the ‘muslin’ for a nicer and more colourful fabric I am still planning to sew but I decided to make a muslin because I had a baby 6 months ago & still am not back to pre-baby shape so I needed to test the pattern. Result= I love it! and i finally have something easy & pretty to wear.
