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?!
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 🙂
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.
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….
