I have been a bit quiet on the blogging front but I have still been sewing away although I do find it hard to spend time in the house at my sewing machine when the sun is shining. I really like to sit in the sun and read a good book in the summer, I love to look at sewing books and plan what I am going make, I always end up with an enormous list.
At the beginning of the month it was my gorgeous daughters birthday and I wanted to make her a summery dress the Sewaholic Saltspring is perfect!
Doesn’t she looks lovely in it! I used some of our delicate and floaty voile fabric Field Study Sinister Swarm, a strange name for such beautiful fabric!
We now have the new patterns from Tilly and the Buttons
I made myself a Miette skirt using some of the Amy Butler Soul Blossoms Cord
Its a wrap-around skirt, so very easy to make, no zips or buttons! The patterns are lovely and the instructions are clear and easy to follow.
We have also had the mens sewing patterns from Thread Theory a very exciting addition to our range, I want to have a go at making the Comox trunks.
I love this picture from their blog, I don’t think I will get any of the boys in my family to model in their underwear for me!
