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!
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.
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!
