I've started sewing. I'm not very good at it, I must admit, but one needs a challenge every now and then. I'm currently part way through this pattern.
|A very simple skirt and cape pattern, or so I thought.|
I have a couple of bits of the skirt to unpick and resew as it came out larger than expected (No, I didn't make a muslin. Yes, I know that is silly) but all in all it is starting to take shape. Hopefully I will start putting the cape together in the next week or so.
|It's a very tiny red and black check. The fabric came from a car boot sale.|
Just enough for the skirt. Cape will be black with this fabric as accents.
|Slightly too big, so am going to unpick and start again. |
I hate unpicking so this is a valuable lesson.
|A blouse I am making to match from a pattern with no instructions. |
Yep, I tend to go all out when I'm trying to learn something.
I thought I'd also share my latest sewing pattern purchase. Feast your eyes on this baby from 1934.
Yes, it even has the original receipt in the envelope.
It says it is a beginner pattern, and I'm certainly that so lets hope I can manage it!
I'm thinking view C in a nice pale green slubby wool.
In other news: I've been a busy girl lately - racking up potential blog posts and not having the time to post them so hopefully this week I'll get a chance to update you all.
I've changed my hair colour, indulged in some delicious French food and attended a hair styling session. I've been to the theatre and also owe you some hair setting posts. Gotta get back on the horse.
