All That Glitters
It is of course Grainline Scout. It is make of a scant yard of shot cotton that I bought from Fabric.com. When I bought it I neglected to take into account the narrower width of this fabric (110cm wide)
so actually didn't order enough.
I have played with this fabric and put it back in my stash several times over the past few months before I actually worked out what I could do with it. Due to the fabric constraints, I cut the top short and added a band to the bottom, also running the sleeves in the opposite direction.
I made a bias binding neck facing out of some co-ordinating cotton out of remnants to complete the top.
I am really happy with how his top worked out and I am sure it will be another regular in both my weekend and weekday rotation.
