Better late than never

Here's the mandarin top that I should have completed on Saturday in time for my night out with my OH. Oh well better late then never and at least now he'll have to take me out again so that I can wear it. I'm really pleased with this as I've really been a perfectionist in finishing every little detail; for instance this morning whilst admiring my handiwork whilst eating my breakfast I noticed during my second spoonful of muesli that from the distance of across the lounge I could clearly see that the frog fasteners were not equally spaced and indeed after getting the tape measure out I had to move the middle fastener 5mm. Perfectionism is alive and well.

The fabric for this is a heavy weight satin from China. It's beautiful and I don't think the photos here do it justice. However, if you click on the link to my incanto Facebook page there are some pictures there of the garment under construction which were taken at night with the flash and they really capture the lustre of the satin.

Let me know what you think.
