Voila the voile top is done

Another great pattern, Simplicity 4589, I know most of you will have read about it before on various blogs. My sister recommended it to me back in April last year after she made her first garment from that very pattern. I was skeptical that it might make a big girl look even bigger with all the gathers but suprisingly when made out of nice soft cotton voile it is ok because the gathers just give your bust room and shape the sleeves. It was very comfy to work in today and really cool to wear. I have another couple of pieces of voile so lets see what I can do with them.

I must do something about working out the timer on my camera so I can take better photos of myself, an arms length is just not enough to fit me in the lens!
