Newbie says HI!

I've been stalking this sew-along for a while, but I've finally decided to join the fun!

I've recently finished a sleeveless top made from a pink and purple camo duvet cover and a long-sleeved shirt.

sewiknit 001 The fabric I'm using is an old duvet cover that used to be my mum's when she was younger and then it was mine, so it's on it's thrid life!

I have a choice in mind; either a relatively simple gypsy top or a more complex princess-seam shirt (both from old issues of UK magazines).

Choice 1 pattern

Choice 2 (the short sleeved shirt on the right)

I'll ruminate on it for a while and make my mind up nearer the time!
