Thank you everyone for your lovely comments, and also for the referral to the boards, Vonnevo- I hadn't seen them before and they're full of interest. Regarding your query, Nannies, I've been debating making the sleeveless pattern in a loosely woven cotton. It would lend itself to become a crinkle top if you were to cut it larger- the fabric would have some give. (

VERY nice! Love that fabric!

what are your thoughts on making out of a summer weight cotton - cutting a larger size to make up for no stretch - thanks

Ooh lucky me...the photos are all working now! Your tunic looks lovely and the pin tucks are just perfect! Congratulations on your first review. Posting photos was definitely the tricky bit for me too when I first got started.

Hope this does the trick! The photos should be available now.

Are you able to change the settings on Shutterfly. I know it's tricky doing your first review.
