August flies by at such a speed! The bank holiday is already upon us, and the festival I have been planning for is suddenly Tomorrow. All the other important events have come and gone. Despite having Laptop issues (every god damm time I update…) I have been a little quieter on Instagram. Mainly I have gone to bed and forgot to post.
Its not for the lack of sewing: I have been busy working at a steadier pace than my ‘MAKE ALL THE THINGS’ and enjoying it. This was the plan, the plan of slowing the makes down and typing them up straight away, but alas, I haven’t even posted a picture of them, let alone type. Its like they don’t exist.
August makes are:
- Tie Dye Smock Dress
- Oversized linen Hi/Low Shirt (white)
- Black lace insert Dress, complete with hand sewn flower patches.
- Black Shirt dress – really important piece as its what got me into this sewing lark! (more in blog as and when)
- The Burda Dress Nightmare!
- A lot of mini refashioning projects…
I have managed a fabric haul in which I bought sensible fabrics that can take me into cooler weather, and I have printed off and constructed many new Pdfs.
New skills I have learnt include Re-sizing existing patterns (properly) And I love it. I am that weird person who likes the odd jobs, Pdf patterns, Building flat pack furniture, and now measuring 100 times to make things a size bigger! I had to up the Darling Dress By Meagan Neilsen as my boobs are so big. Its currently waiting to be finished.
Well, hope you lot have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend. I will see you lot on the other side
