(Well not counting the time it took to fly to New York, visit Mood Fabrics, purchase this Missoni knit and then fly back...)
Oh and if I didn't make it clear that this top is a made by me dud, here's the proof:
Note: by dud we mean the singular of duds, a slang term for clothing, not dud, as in 'that firecracker was a dud'. Or, 'that blind date sure was a dud. What was my mother thinking?'. Etc. I hope we have cleared up any confusion.
