Lovely job Dandelion. Maybe little pieces of leftover fabric could be made into articles that could be sold - by a charity shop, school fair or some other fund-raising activity.

That's a delightful little dress, Dandelion, and a wonderful bit of 're-purposing'.

Good point. We used to make hair 'scrunchies' from leftover fabric when my girls were at school - I wonder what the current craze is?

My first proper 'make' since we moved here.

We can use our concessionary bus passes on the Heart of Wales line from October to March, meaning free train travel for 6 months. There is a great fabric/craft/wool shop in Shrewsbury, and I bought several patterns and pieces of fabric on my last trip. Thought I might need some indoor winter projects in this rainy part of the country!

Looks a nicely made job, and I like the colours - reminds me of a plasma ball ! Is it for general, or dancing related use ?

Nice bit of pattern matching there Freebird. I like the colours.
Shrewsbury's a bit of a trek for me on the train but doable and its a lovely journey. We're exactly half way along the line so it's the same time to Swansea.

Thank you all. It's just for general wear. I love check shirts, but usually end up buying from charity shops, slightly the wrong colour or slightly the wrong fit. So nice to have something that fits and in my favourite colours.

Beautiful shirt, freebird. Just my style and colours too! I know what you mean about ending up with not quite what you want.

Did I detect perfectly matched pockets Laughing
