I almost had enough flamingo material to make a second Simplicity 3835 top. So I searched through my fabric stash and found the peacock feather fabric, which I love and had used to make a tiered A-line skirt with. I didn’t have enough of it either to make the whole two sleeves, so patchworked the two fabrics together, et voila! I like the effect.

I put just enough elastic in the sleeve hems to give it a bit of bunching. It looks better than not elasticating them.

John Lewis has a fabric sale on at the moment and it is so tempting to buy a lot of fabric that I quite like, just because it is half price.
