What to sew next? I was given this selection of fabric as a birthday present when I was at my parents’ house, it’s from Fabric Land in Sailsbury.
I used the blue and white stripe for my Aeolian dress, which I have yet to shorten (see previous blog). I want to make a Scout Tee dress with the pink leopard print – I know NEON PINK LEOPARD PRINT!! What was I thinking, my Mum looked at me sideways and said “What are you going to make with that?!”
I will use the green polka dot for some wide leg summer trousers, it is a poly cotton mix light suit weight and has some stretch, just trying to find the right pattern. Maybe the Colette Juniper or the trousers from the Holly Jumpsuit By Hand London.
The plain blue fabric is a scuba stretch that I want to use to make the Morris Blazer from Grainline Studio. Both sides of the fabric are the same and it doesn’t fray so I thought I would try making it without the front facing and just leaving a raw edge, we’ll see!
The white is for a Plantain Tee from Deer and Doe I think, not very exciting but it will get a lot of wear. It’s a FREE downloadable pattern and it fits through the shoulders and bust then widens out to an A-line, very flattering.
