Thanks everyone for your suggestions on what to do with my 2m of silly holiday inspired fabric. In the end, I played it safe - maybe too safe...
A loose fitting blouse with sleeves just above the wrist, and black satin bands. You know how I love my bands.
Perhaps I should have heeded longredthread's advice and gone for short sleeves. It really is like wearing a shamrock garden. Showing some arm would have minimised this.
As often happens, a day after I finished, I was walking down the high street and I had a moment of clarity about what I SHOULD have done. Short sleeves with gathers, bodice hitting just below the hip. The good thing is that I have 1 metre left, so I can try again next year!
Or maybe not....for all my hesitation about wearing it out today, it was nothing a pint of Guinness couldn't cure.
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
