Whoop, I’m on a roll with the sewing stuff! I love it, nothing better than spending hours all day with the music on and the sewing machine whirring. So what am I up to now.. well, now that you ask.
I have these:
In a clockwise direction starting top left, duck-egg blue fine whale corduroy, a Christmas present from a good friend a few years ago. I still hadn’t decided what to make with it, but I have a feeling that it will make a very cosy jacket. Remember I made a pattern that had a darted sleeve head? That was a year ago!!! Well, I think this is the fabric for that pattern! Two for One is finally going to live up to its name.
Next, the blue silk. I’ve had that a good number of years now too! I recently held a Pattern Magic workshop over a weekend, and one of the patterns we tried out was the Different Facings. I love the idea that from the same bodice front pattern you can get different tops just by altering the shape of the facing. So I am keep to make a top with this fabric using one of these patterns.
And lastly. The grey herringbone twill. That I got at Sewing for Pleasure earlier this year, and it will be the jacket in the photograph opposite. Daughter no1 fancies it very much, but I will not be using the pattern directly from the Burda magazine. I am going to have to pattern cut it because I am not in the mood to use precious time adjusting a pattern a million times! Daughter no1 is petite, very slender, but needs a FBA in every pattern.
Sewing With A Plan! At last…
Enjoy your weekend, whatever you are doing, and where ever in the world you are.
