Still working to finish up this book - it will be done by the middle of next week, and then onto new things! Partly trying to get some more stuff together to sell at Hifest...
In the meantime, I've been carrying on the sewing. First up is the Miette blouse from Tilly and the Buttons. I made this for my mum, but in the end a blue shirt I'd made was a better match for her.
Back, with buttons from Mum's button box!
Copied from old Jaeger charity shop shirt - let's pretend those buttons aren't sewn down sans buttonholes.
Shirt outside Mum!
I also had a go with some cotton jersey, and with some flammable horrorfabric from Goldhawk Road. But I love the white dress even so, I feel like a powerful 80s lady in it - a feeling I enjoy very much.
Sewing stretch cotton - pretty forgiving.
Powerful. Channelling Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead.
I'm also working on some numbers cards... these are what I've managed so far. These are roughs, but I can imagine making a range from these guys...
Need to work out a palette for them all that will really make the numbers obvious!
