A quick post today to showcase a little top I made out of some gorgeous gifted fabric.
Earlier this year, Jen generously gifted me this lovely piece of Viyella fabric. It has a lovely almost flannel hand, with a strong diagonal weave. The photo above is the real colour of the fabric, sadly the other photos have the fabric looking a bit washed out.
It was a tiny piece of fabric only about 1m by 90cm. Just enough to make a little sleeveless top. I would have just had enough for small sleeves but I stupidly tapered them in which meant that if I'd attached them I wouldn't have got my arms in.. so sleeveless it was.
The style of top will come as no surprise. A little peplum. It is a hack of the kanerva with a gathered peplum. I can't help myself. I love a little gathered peplum and they just feel me. This one is a bit shorter than my usual ones but I like it and have plans to pair it with my denim pants for the spring.
Thanks again Jen for so generously gifting me this beautiful fabric x
