Hello, and happy Friday to you . . .
It seems to me like the year is speeding by and I'm constantly playing catch-up as one busy week rolls into the next. But I'm trying to steadily work my way through my WIP list and being very good about not starting anything new . . . at least until the current list is reduced to an acceptable (for me) level.
So first up for "show & tell" this week: meet Cordelia.
Actually, its proper name is The Cordelia Dress and it's the latest lovely pattern from Sew Me Something - however, despite having now made three, none of them are in fact a dress ; - )

I do so love dresses, but have a fair abundance of them in my wardrobe already and what I really need for the upcoming Summer, is tops so I made these three at tunic length. The pattern is quite versatile so really you can adjust the length to suit you . . . from tunic to maxi and everything in between - the choice is yours.
I made the two sleeveless tops a little while ago (regular readers may remember a few sneak peeks) , but just finished the other one this week. The pattern includes three different sleeve options (the other being a longer sleeved version - perfect for the cooler seasons), all of which are very simple to do.
I love the clever twist at the front, and I must just point out that they look lovelier on person than on the hanger, but I'm home alone and decidedly rubbish at selfies, so hang they must.

It's a long weekend here, so I'm hoping to get some more projects ticked off my List - what are your weekend plans ? Anything exciting ?
'til next time,
ps. And a big welcome to my new followers too - thanks for popping by, it's lovely to see you.
