I didn’t intend this Liberty fabric I bought just before Christmas to become a hack of the By Hand London Flora pattern, or indeed a top at all. But, after making (and failing badly at) a pleated skirt using the fabric, I decided I had enough fabric left to eke out a top from it. And I’m glad I did.
Bias binding – it’s a beautiful thing and really adds a special touch to your work. Once you’ve learnt how to make your own, you’ll never look back and, best of all, you don’t even need anything fancy to make it with, just a few items you probably already have and your lovely fabric of choice.
