Do you think I should have had a bit part in Abigail’s Party?


I’ve finished by boho top. I wore the top today. It is incredibly comfortable. It is such a an easy style, but I think it is the silk/ cotton mix that makes it feel so wonderful.

I did make a change to the instructions in the pattern. I decided that rather than creating a casing for elastic on the sleeves, I would just add two lines of shirring. I actually think this gives the top a more professional look.

Do you know what I’m reminded of? Abigail’s party. In case you aren’t familiar, it is a play by Mike Leigh. It was broadcast as a Play for Today on the BBC in the 1970s. Just look at the dress Alison Steadman (standing up) is wearing! Think my top would fit in!
