Here is the top on me as promised, not that I am much more presentable today and the photos are rubbishy self timer ones but you can get the general idea and you can see the batwing sleeves which are going to take a bit of getting used to. I think I could lower the neckline a little now I see these photos and I definitely think putting back the missing gathers will be an improvement too.
Yesterday I bought the fabrics for the outfit I'm making for the wedding on 31/10 (Halloween! I'm almost tempted to go in costume...). I am so excited about these I can't tell you, and the photo does not do them justice. I bought some turquoise dupioni for the coat - it's hard to see but it is shot with brown - and some brown and turquoise brocade with birds on it for a dress. I'll keep my blog updated with progress on them, got to get moving or I really will be going to the wedding in a pumpkin outfit.
