Berry good!

After a super busy week (and a bit) I’m back in business with some sewing!! Firstly I’ll say Portugal was lovely and hot and relaxing.

When I got back I went to my Little Fro’s second graduation!

Super proud of him. He got a distinction don’tcha know. Look at him in his cap and gown, so dashing.

Then on Friday I got whisked off to A BALL! Yep you heard me. I’m kind of gutted that I couldn’t make a ball gown but as I was only given 3 days notice I couldn’t really have whipped one up. Really it was amazing to be invited at all!

The ball was part of a charity golf day and dinner with Bedfords that Jimi and his work colleagues were attending (as they manage the marketing for the company). We had a slap up dinner, then there was a raffle and auction before the dancing started.

OH MY THE DANCING!

Jimi and I tore up the floor. His work colleagues were in awe as they’ve never seen his unbelievable dancing before. I am well aware how good his is and use it to my advantage, dragging him up every two mins. At one point it was just the two of us, spinning and quick-stepping around. Legendary night.

And then the weekend arrived and I raced back to my sewing table!! Hence the name of the post.

It’s all gone a bit pink and fruity here in the flat.

First off I got a new sewing pattern off eBay. Now isn’t this a cute little number?!

Look at that grapefruit pink! It totally works on the blonde fox on the envelope. She’s so chic… I’m jealous.

But what the heckers fabric should I use?

No, seriously!

It doesn’t tell me anywhere on the envelope  or pattern sheets what fabric to use.

I’m kind of guessing some kind of  opaque polyester?! (As there’s no lining instructions.)  Possibly thinking red and white polka dot…..

Raspberry ripple

Secondly, I’m working on a top for next weekend’s night out. It’s Sewing Sarah’s birthday drinks in Saltaire.

I have some lovely raspberry chiffon and I’m making New Look 6962 view D without the tie.

I hate chiffon. Well I hate sewing it. I love wearing it. Quite the dilemma.

I’ve made good progress already. I altered the front bodice so I don’t have to wear a top underneath like my star-print top.

Then finally I’m starting on a secret strawberry project. All I’ll say is that if it goes to plan it’ll be a treat for someone nice and I might put a tutorial up as well.

Time to log off and watch more Wilfred season 2 (omg that show is hilarious, watch it) while tidying up the sewing corner! Turrah for now!
