I used to embroider regularly so this was like going back in time.
The kit contained pre-printed ribbon, thread and instructions. It took an evening while watching TV.

Both tops are made with cotton fabric from my stash. Both pieces were too short to cut the back from one length so there is a join at the back waist.
The pattern says to insert a back zipper which I did for the bird fabric, but after trying it on I decided I didn't need a zip for the fox fabric version.
I tried using bias binding instead of facings in the first version but didn't get it to sit quite right. So the fox fabric version has a neckline facing as per pattern instructions.
