  • Adapting a linen top 21 March 2017 | View comments

  • I have a top that's made of a loosely woven linen fabric and, as I wear it, gets bigger and bigger and longer and longer until it's hanging off my shoulders and drooping around my knees ... not a good look ;-)

    So I thought I'd have a go at shrinking it down to submission by felting some nuno patchwork on to the upper half. I made some prefelted nuno sheets, cut them into strips, and laid them in place (after placing a sheet of resist inside the top).

    It has definitely done the job - the fabic no longer stretches as I wear it and the whole thing holds its shape well so I'm chuffed!
