Red Monday!

The weirdest thing happened to me this weekend.  I had traced off the Burda blouse #114 from January 2016 and was ready to toile.  In the stash, lurked a length of red and white viscose crepe, kindly swapped by Del almost 2 years ago.  I never could think of what to use it for, but … Continue reading “Red Monday!”

Work in Progress Wednesday

I hadn’t thought I’d have a post for today, thought I’d have finished off my epic two-coat run.  But nope, I’ve been a little slow this week!  So here’s what I’ve been working on for the last 2 weeks, two versions of the coat 103 from February Burda 2017. The fabric is a pinky-copper coloured … Continue reading “Work in Progress Wednesday”

Work in Progress Wednesday

The Carme – New to Me

I feel like I’ve been sewing non stop lately.  Last week I completed four projects, started and completed, might I add.  So over the weekend I had time off.  And Monday.  And Tuesday too.  Then I remembered I had cut the toile for Pauline Alice‘s Carme Blouse in order to enter it into The Monthly … Continue reading “The Carme – New to Me”

Pattern Magic Magic!

Well now, here is one pattern I will definitely be using again!  And with 4 different looks available from just 4 different facings, I am going to have a field day! This is the blue silk with spots that I think I got from Rosenberg & Sons, a very long time ago!  There never seemed … Continue reading “Pattern Magic Magic!”
