Bow Back Nettie

Oops I did it again. I made another Nettie top (here's my first one). It's got stripes on it, surprisingly enough.

This time I lengthened the sleeves and, since I find my bra straps keep peeping out at the back when I wear the first version, I brought the sides of the scoop back in a little. I think the fabric is from a shop on Goldhawk Road. Today I'm wearing Nettie with my favourite Delphine skirt, from Love at First Stitch - a match made in nautical heaven.

Oh yes, and it has a bow at the back! I'm going to share a little tutorial soon on how to make the bow, if you want to make one yourself. (Just in case you're wondering whether I really do have a beefcake body builder back as this photo would suggest, no. I do not. It was surprisingly difficult to get the angle right on this photo!)

What have you been sewing, please?
