This has been a long time coming! Moss stitch takes forever and I did get distracted with one or two other things in between…..anyway here it is.

I ended up making the larger size because I didn’t want it too fitted and wanted to be able to wear it over long sleeved tops but it’s a bit baggy under the arms. I bit more shaping by the side seams would have been better. I lengthened the body by another 7cm because Mum is always pulling hers down! It is quite cropped otherwise. The only other modification I made was shortening the sleeves by 2cm. It could even do to be a bit longer all over but that’s tough luck now. It sewed up really nicely and the sleeves are a lovely shape and fit. I did make a buttonhole but will mostly wear it with a brooch.

Think I might start something that isn’t green! Here’s a close-up of the colour and the stitching.
