Antrim, Co Antri...






I needed something quick and easy for our saint patricks day out!! Saint paddys day is monday but the pubs always have irish dancers singers etc on the sat before as well. I made this in an hour!! It is far from perfect as i did’nt bother lining the hearts up at the front. This was basically a trace position pin cut and sew lol. I just wanted something fun with a bit of green in it. I do like this top though. Its been frankenweenied by me. I opted out of the casings and just rouched, i also added a band because it was to short. I will make another proper one and i do highly recommend this. Ps we had a fabulous day out x

    Your skill to combine fabrics and match the patterns to them always surprises me, Mary. Your fantasy is limitless! This pattern would never attract my attention unless I saw your top. It’s wonderful, I like it very much!

      Oh so did i!! Its funny you saying that as mum commented on my irish dancing yesterday. I was a champion irish dancer way way back lol but all i can remember now is the 7’s. Mum said she can still remember curling my hair into ringlets. My outfit was emerald green and red . Happy days. The dancers yesterday where fabulous x

      Thank you so much, this is a lovely easy pattern and super quick if you omit the casings like me. I just gathered the back conecting parts ,rouched them then stitched them twice. I did’nt even bother with the back seam aa i cut on the fold. X
