Essential Top - Finished!

Done at last!  There's been a lot of hand sewing involved, as this fabric frays so easily and needs to be false French seamed on the insides.  I also finished the hems by hand.  I love it though and I think this will be a favourite!  All in all, it's only cost £3.00 to make.  I found the fabric for £2.50 in a charity shop, as well as the thread for 50p.  I already had the pattern and some interfacing.  I've just sent these pictures to Faye at http://fayessewingadventure.blogspot.co.uk/ so  she can add them into her Essential Top lineup.  She's extended the deadline to Wednesday, to allow for people taking time out for Easter.  I'd recommend hopping over there for a look, as she has some fantastic photos in there.
