So here’s Skipper #2.
This one is made with a lovely autumnal floral in a light weight wool. Another second hand fabric gift from my sister. I’ve made the neckband out of a navy from my stash, as the other colours aren’t the best for me. The navy is definitely a man-made fibre of some kind. It was almost water repellent when I washed it!
Other than stay-stiching the neck band, and lowering the darts 4cm I made no adjustments. This top comes together very easily, although I still struggle with the welt finish on the neckline. Getting things straight while sewing backwards and upsidedown (this is what welts feel like in my brain) is not my strong suit. #emergingskills
I really like this, but I do realise I have basically made scrubs. Which fits with my desire to wear pyjamas all the time.
No further comments really.
