The Great Module Sewalong: the results!

The deadline for #thegreatmodulesewalong is today, so I managed to scrape in by the skin of my teeth.

I bought it in a sale from Fabricworm and I think they got some more in.

Everyone keeps going on about how cool and swishy it is to wear. I have to admit I’ve never got on with RTW linen much. It never seemed to fit me well, no matter how thin or curvy I was.
