Yup, oh dear! No posts in March because I haven’t really got anything to show you. I should have known not to do the Bossy thing – I never did like people telling me what to do! Even though the chosen projects were ones I wanted to do anyway, I hit small snags & immediately found something else to do instead. Bad, bad, bad!
But, I didn’t do nothing. I drafted the jacket front & back & made a toile, leaving the sleeves out for the time being. Daughter No2 wasn’t really feeling the huge collar, and felt the shape at the front was “weird”. Now you see why I didn’t really go too much further? Anyway, I pinned the toile into more of a suitable shape & length for her, but then she had issues with my chosen fabric. She just couldn’t see herself wearing that houndstooth. So I’m stuck – the jacket pattern could be made to work, but now I need a different fabric.
Husband has proved difficult too. Even though I’ve promised him shirts for years now he’s “in no rush”. So no progress on that front.
I have made the pattern for Daughter No1’s Grecian inspired dress and toiled it too, but I won’t get to fit it on her until next weekend when she’s home for University for the Easter holidays.
That leaves me with nothing to show – not a bit. But… I have some linen that I bought at the NEC last week that was supposed to be for a vintage bolero to go with a dress I’m making. However, I made a miscalculation when translating yards and inches into metres and bought too little – flipping annoying! It just may be though, that it will be enough to squeeze another Bellatrix out of! I’m off to try it now, see you on the other side! 😉
I love this print, found the image on Pinterest initially & tried to find it on Etsy, but so far have been unable to find the maker. If someone can trace images better than I can, please let me know who the owner is of this, I’d love to buy a print for my sewing space!
