I was browsing in Wallis today and came across this top which I really liked. Its a simple viscose jersey top in black with a ruched front, however what makes it special is the embellishment. This has been applied on a stiffened facing piece which is on the outside, stitched on by machine at the neckline, but by hand lower down.
I really like this - maybe almost enough to buy it (its £35 for anyone who is interested) - but definitely enough to try to be inspired by the method for the 2010 SWAP. One of the rules is to have among the collection,
"1 will feature embroidery, beads or sashiko"
