I don’t know what it is that naturally draws me to royal blue but it’s a colour that works well with my skin tone and hair colour. I’m learning that it’s important to pick fabric that I really like and that suits me. Not only that but it made me really concentrate and take my time over every small detail – because I really wanted to be able to wear this once it was finished.
This time making New Look 6483 was much smoother than the practise run. The French seams worked a treat, the vents (well one side at least) did not get me too flustered and all my other changes have led to a better fitting top.
