|All the essentials, cup of tea, book, tracing paper, fabric, pencil, cutting implements and weights and pins and on the bench the cutting mat|

|Me looking a little pensive as not sure I like this top.|

Now I'd love to put some darts in and make it sit nicely but then I'm going to have to open up the side seam and put in a zip to get in and out and while I'm at it I may as well put some darts in the front as well and get a really fitted top. Then however, it would be a completely different top and there's the slight problem of the fabric not being the most robust and it doesn't like being unpicked once sewn as nearly had some very large holes after having to unpick a dart miss sewn. Urgh.
I do like the sleeves though, they're really pretty, I'm just not certain this is the right shape top for me. I'll have a think on it and see what jumps out at me!
