EmmaOneSock had a silk mesh knit listed on their site...I had never seen a silk mesh knit and was very, very curious. Needless to say, I bought it, even though it was not in my usual colours, even though I had no idea what I would use it for, even though I have plenty of other fabrics waiting to be sewn. (I have had to stop going to the EmmaOneSock, because I can just not resist purchasing the fabulous fabrics listed.) If anybody is wondering, silk mesh knit is very soft, very light and feels most luxurious.
And now I have made it up in a DKNY top (Vogue 2923). I like the top, but I'm not sure about the colours...I'm wondering if it will suit one of my sisters better. .. , still deciding, she may get my "designer" top for nothing.
I don't normally get too much response from my partner about my sewing, but he laughed when he saw this. He said the combination of the haircut and the top reminded him of some of the ladies is his street growing up...they probably didn't call them yummy mummies back then, but I'm hoping that is who he meant!
