Antrim, Co Antri...
well working with a broken finger is certainly challenging but not impossible. i wanted to make a few quick and easy tops for this strange weather we’re having. roasting hot one minute and pouring down the next. its very clammy though so i wanted something that’ll do me now and also my holiday to spain. i saw janenes versions of this top and loved them so i made three. i found them quick and easy but very sack like on me. number 1 was the grafetti one and i wore it out but i found it to wide.. i am going to take the sides in as it sits nicer i think. i cut the middle size. on top 2 and 3 i made them a couple of inches smaller. they’re very comfortable and easy to wear i am now going to make 3 chiffon versions as well. x
