I got it from Anglia fabrics in Norwich. I don't think it's got cotton in it.

Lovely top - ready for spring... when it arrives.

Oh I do like that pattern, not too brassy or too dark (my perspective not yours).  When you look online (I don't get to many proper shops), everything even simply made with a decent fabric costs over £30, the saving you make is phenomenal.

Gives you a real warm glow.

Nice top and I like the fabric.  I am looking for fabric very like that at the moment.  I made a sleeveless shift dress but think it could have a top under it, just like this one. Very nice work!  :D

Oh, I like it, both the fabric and the design. The design lends itself to lots of fabric.
