The bib section of this pattern comes in two equal parts which are sewn together down the front. However I cut this section out on the fold, allowing an extra 1.5cm either side so I had one bib piece only and it would still marry up once I came to stitch. With horizontal stripes I didn't really see the need to cut them up and this method works so well. Aside from the bib, the only other change I made was to dispense of the traditional dress shirt style hem, in favour of a straight hem so I guess you could say this version is more dress than shirt.
Now then, what else to tell .. the season is romping away, honeysuckle is the latest flower to brighten the garden and unbelievably the children finish school for the Summer in less than three weeks. It's crazy to think we have been here for six and a half months now, can you believe it? This house has been good to us but it's time to move on once again soon. Time to think about retrieving our belongings. Time for a holiday, or two, first. Which reminds me, does anyone know the rules on taking knitting needles in the air and does it matter whether they're straight or circular, wood or metal? I'd love to know.
Thank you for all your kind comments on the Model's rainbow cardigan, we both loved reading them. And a big hello to those lovely new faces who pop by to investigate my little space here. You are all so very welcome!
