In addition my old camera died and while the new one is undoubtedly superior I am still learning how to get it to focus less on my face and more on my clothes. Also the self timer function is annoying - my old camera would do 3 shots at 10 second intervals, this camera either does one at a time or 10 within about a second which I am sure is great for photos of hummingbirds etc, but I just get 10 lousy shots of me instead of 1!
Anyway excuses excuses blah blah blah, let's just get on with it shall we and see if the photos improve over time, bear with me....
First up Burda 10/2012 - 119 jersey crossover top. I probably already have at least 1 pattern like this somewhere but it seems I like to torture myself tracing new ones.
I made this with an odd shaped offcut of brown zig zap printed jersey. It's a little loud and, well, zig-zaggy, but I think with a brown jacket on the top this will make a great fall outfit.
There really is nothing to say about the construction other than I raised the neckline about 1 inch and made the sleeve hem smaller due to fabric shortage, it's very straightforward to put together and dare I say that the instructions are even quite good!
