It’s been a busy couple of days, what with the ghastly marathon to prepare our tax return and subsequent visit to the accountant, but it’s done for another year.
I haven’t been able to get near the sewing machine for a few days, and was starting to get withdrawal symptoms. So when an opportunity presented itself this afternoon, I got cracking. And here is the result. That pretty cotton lace around the neckline came from Annett in Germany; I’d been looking for something to use it for, and this is perfect. I’ve made a couple of patch pockets to go on this tunic, trimmed with the same lace, but I think I prefer it plain…. I love the colour, the feel of the fabric and the scale of the print, and it’s going to be a comfortable thing to wear when it’s very hot. Happy!
I’m not going to spend all my time stitching garments now, as I have a couple of quilts waiting for me to put cutter to fabric, but I’m going to work my way through the stack of fabrics bit by bit.
And you know what? Dressmaking makes some fabulous scraps!
