Re Becca said...
OK, that is just too cute! Lekala huh? I may have to jump on the bandwagon for this one. You said this was easy to make, it looks really complicated.

I love the chevron effect with the fabric you chose. This is a very cute top. Thanks for your review!

That looks absolutely incredible. I can't work out how it goes together from your picture. Love your version :)

ArtAttack said...
This is a show-stopper! I think I must shamelessly copy you! Too cute!

Jstarr4250 said...
Copy away ArtAttack! You know what they say about imitation.... Re Becca, it really isn't complicated at all but if you get stuck feel free to PM me.

Looks fab. How is the fit? As good as they promise? You will have to post a picture of yourself modelling it :-)

Jstarr4250 said...
The fit is fantastic mnitts. The only thing I will do on the next one is take a little wedge from the collar center back seam. It could be a bit more snug to keep the stripes nice and straight.
