I shall wear midnight (if it fits me)

I had grand plans for a black top, versatile I thought. Good for Me Made June. Good for work. This week's theme is embellishment so I was thinking of a big flower.

This is what I made:

I can't tell you how hideous I look in it. It is so unsuitable, the jersey is too heavy, it's horribly depressing and doesn't fit me. I am abandoning it (at speed, running away!).

I quite like the flower though:


  1. Oh no!!! It looks great but sad the fabric doesn't work out. The flower is fabulous and such a great idea!!

  2. I agree with Debi. Is there any chance you can salvage it? And is the title a reference to the newest Terry Pratchett book by any chance? ;)

  3. Charolette,
    so sorry that the blouse didnt work out.. It looks great in the picture..but I understand , sometimes ,when we put them on our bodies..oooh yuk..
    Look forward to seeing what you come up with next..

  4. Sometimes things just don't work out right! It does look nice on the hanger but if you don't feel good in it then it's best to move on. I love the flower though!

  5. I agree with the other ladies, better go ahead. You have a huge range of possibilities in front of you.

  6. Hi Charlotte , I wanted to let you know that I just linked you website today on my Post about the traveling notions, so you maybe wanna have a look.

    Tomorrow I am havin a giveaway and the day after i will show my dress from this challenge ! lots of love !
