I made one of the projects from Shape Shape, which I’ve had my eye on for ages. Finally bit the bullet when it was freezing cold and finished just as the sun came out!
Size S, took about 1 metre of fabric though with some economical pattern placement. I also used selvedges as facing. Looking forward to wearing it over the summer.
Simple top, but you do need a bit of knowhow to understand how it’s different to a regular pattern piece, and also to make progress on your own rather than reading instructions
