MMM12 Day 8: Spot On!

So I had a bit of a sewing disaster this weekend. For some inexplicable reason a cup of tea flung itself out of my hand and all over: a) my sewing table, b) my mannequin “Beryl” and c) some of my fabric. Oh and the floor but who cares about that?!

Errr can I stop taking photos yet?

By the time I’d mopped it all up, washed the fabric and gotten myself a new cuppa I’d lost the will to sew. *Sulk*

But by yesterday I’d gotten back enough motivation to add straps to my new dotty top! Amazingly this was a prima magazine pattern gifted to me by my mum’s friend Sandra! Thanks Sandra šŸ™‚

Prima patterns are very straightforward which is both a good and a bad thing. They don’t look like much when you’re done but they are easy to make and provide a nice staple for the wardrobe.

I have some other Prima patterns to work through including a very simple skirt pattern to try. Hopefully when I get my pattern review page up and running I can add details there!

In other news, the trampy red lace I bought is washed and looking at me longingly… or am I looking at it longingly?! I don’t think it’s that trampy actually. I’m more worried about the white lace looking granny-ish! And I am desperate to start cutting out my spyrograph roses and my fish print fabric…

Oh and I wanted to also share this awesome Vogue colour chart showing the Queen’s fave colours. She loves a bit of blue….
