I have been quiet on the blog for quite some time due to work and generally being busy with life. However, I have still been sewing a lot and have attended a course at Morley College one day a week which has been amazing and I have learnt so much as well as making some new sewing friends!
So … for now I will just show my basic makes for holiday, ie, easy to wash and wear with minimal care. We are going away for 3 weeks with a small luggage allowance so I’m trying to mix and match clothing!
This is a hack of the Scout Tee, I just cropped it and added a 9″ peplum which is almost double the width of the top (not quite double as I didn’t have enough fabric)!
As you can see there is a seam down the front, this is because I cut it out late at night after a long day at work and I accidentally placed the shoulder curve on the fold thinking it was the front neckline, anyway, it turned out ok!
Next up, another Scout Tee hack with a dipped hem at the back (and no centre seam!)
I love this fabric, such pretty colours, Tilly and the Buttons used it in some of their kits for the Zadie dress.
I also made a knit top from a Stoff and Stil pattern, it’s supposed to be for a woven but I wanted a knit of ease of wear and I love the sleeves with a slight gather at the shoulder and the bell shape.
Apologies for the messy kitchen and lack of head, my photographer was doing his best under pressure to get back to the world of Zelda!
Hopefully I will get back into the groove and catch up with my massive backlog of finished garments .. just need to get all the photos done!
One thought on “Holiday Sewing… And Fabric Shopping Plans!”
The sleeves on your grey top are lovely. Very flattering.
