Now that I had my sizing, I was keen to make up Sewaholic'smy 'real' fabric. I chose piece of black lace from Cotura Fashions which I intended to back in coloured satin. The satin was to match the shoes I am wearing in the above picture. I love these shoes but don't have much to wear with them unfortunately. Matching the fabric to my shoes proved to be difficult to say the least but I feel my shopping frustrations are very much justified with the resulting match.
The neckline on my Citrus Belcarra was still a little wide so for this version, I added 1cm at the shoulders only.
The fit on this top, I have to say, is spot on and this will now become my template for further versions.
