Update: August 2017

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
