Ladies and Gentlemen!
I have to tell you about my latest sewing obsession- Dickeys.
What on earth? I hear you ask.
Basically, A dickey is a cut down blouse or shirt .
Videos available on ytube etc.
I'm busty and blouses are always bulky on me and make my jumper sleeves too tight etc.
I have always worn jumpers without anything under them- except a thermal haha!
I bought several blouses I liked in a charity shop, a nice plain white cotton one, a fresh green and white striped one, a multi blue and red one.
Cut down the shoulders and down the front and in a bib shape, overlock the edges, add a bit of elastic between the front and back beneath armpit level et voila!
I can't believe how well they have turned out and now I can wear some of my wider necked jumpers that were getting a bit chilly these day.
The whole look is very fresh and fun to do.
Maybe I haven't explained it too well but if anyone is interested it's easily found.
They retail for around £20 which is crazy for half a blouse!
