This is my third The Assembly Line Cuff Top (see V1 and v2) and it was a perfect match for this botanical print with a moody background. I feel in love with this linen the minute it arrived at work. Yes, yes, I may have gasped at it’s beauty!
It’s unusual to see a botanical print with a dark background that moves between french navy, deep purple and dark green.
This project was a lesson in buying two body lengths (1.4m) when making a Cuff Top in 137cm wide fabric. I only just eeeked this out of the meterage I purchased. Needless-to-say, cutting out was a little bit stressful. Thankfully, the sewing was straightforward.
As you can see from my smile below, I’m pretty happy with this one!
