A picture is worth...

6 rectangles (two sleeves, two neckline border pieces, a front panel, and solid black back panel). Two hours. Made and worn in one weekend. Went to a great lunch with some fabulous sewing goddesses on Saturday, and had a chance to wear my new friend...

Yes, my "London Eye" panel became a shirt.  If you've been following the blog for a while, you may remember how/when I found her. She absolutely looks better worn on a body than on the dress form, but you know how I hate to pose.  She needs a breeze, a context, an environment to show her true personality.  I am very happy with her. 


  1. Beautiful--love the way the black serves as a frame for that wonderful image.

  2. Mimi, you are so right that the top looks better on you than it does on the mannequin. It was a pleasure to meet you finally and hope to see you soon! XOXO

    1. Thank you, Rosie... And yes, you will see me again soon! Just try an' stop me!
