The second picture is a simple little top made from the Learn to Sew with Lauren book and she very helpfully showed how to do a full bust adjustment on her blog, Guthrie & Ghani. This was something I've wanted to try for a while and it was surprisingly straightforward. It was very satisfying to have darts in the right place and not to have to go up a size to ensure a good fit around the bust.
So, 12 days in and I've managed to find something homemade to wear every day but it has made me realise where the gaps are in my homemade wardrobe - solid colours, trousers and cardigans (must knit faster!). I did finish one pair of trousers but they won't be making an appearance outside of the house and certainly not in front of the camera! Let's just say I'm still seeking the perfect trouser pattern!
