However it lingered in the back of my wardrobe totally abandoned and unloved. I finally made the decision to buy another metre of the fabric (not expensive and available online from Fabicland) and recut another front. Boy am I pleased that I took the time to do this! I absolutely love it now and it's pretty much in my weekly work wardrobe rotation.
I finished it off with some outlandish blue buttons which I wasn't too sure of at the start but which it's a twist I really like on it now.
Perhaps I need to revisit some of my other failures after all there are more than a few to choose from! Have you managed to rescue any items?
Happy stitching x
