Welcome to Sew-Happy Sunday!
This is our chance to share the sewing we have been up to this last week.
Now this is a pretty relaxed sort of invitation, the sewing you share could be a completed project...or a UFO; it could be a skirt or a pair of toddlers dungarees; a quilt or a cushion cover; appliqué or cross-stitch - or perhaps you've been mending torn sleeves and button holes (what do boys get up to at school?)
As long as it somehow relates to sewing it qualifies :)
This week I've been frantic at TAFE pattern-making the dreaded 80's-inspired trousers and trying to perfect a fly zipper.
I also had a go at fine tuning the black pants I made last week and am now much happier with the drape and fit :) - but it did involve a lot of unpicking and a fair amount of colourful language!
|??? - yes the reason it's being modelled by |
Lady Penelope and not me is because it's
a size too small:( A very good incentive
to shed a few winter kgs!
And here's something I finished a few weeks ago - but haven't had time to post about.
An A-Line skirt in a quirky lime cotton covered in black line chairs! It's divine and I love it :)
This skirt came as a kit from UK company
ClothKits founded in the 1960's.
ClothKits produced sewing kits for women's and children's clothing. The company was eventually swallowed by a larger corporation who promptly forgot about it.
Fabric and fashion designers combine to create funky garment kits that are an absolute breeze to put together. Everything you could possibly need to make to garment is included - down to a sweet sew-in label and wrapped in a ribbon tape measure!
The garment pattern is actually printed onto the fabric - no excuses for not following the grain :)
Now it's your turn!
