Minerva Crafts UK, Pitt Trading, Lolita patterns, Pattern Review and Fehr Trade have been very generous to me and I wanted to say thank you this week. There are more people I have to thank and I’ll do this next week too.
|I’m deliriously happy with my new working wardrobe supported by Minerva Crafts UK and this photo was taken on the way to buy a morning coffee. Why wouldn’t you be happy when you sew with lovely fabric and enjoy a good cuppa.|
In the morning I wore PB Jam leggings and Kwik Sew 3567 top (not blogged yet).
The day began with a visit to the dentist and then I spent the rest of the day recovering. If I was taller, I would have blended in with this painting.
This Minerva test top (with Pattern Magic collar) and self-drafted skirt made with leftover Minerva fabric felt a bit big on me. I probably made them too big in the summer because of the humidity. That night I took out this extra room from both pieces. My unpicker and I are great friends again.
These pieces now they fit better – hurrah!
Another Minerva trouser make and the new Lolita Olive top. I love wearing strong colours. I haven’t needed to wear the Minerva jacket because our beautiful Sydney weather is teasing us with some lovely warmth.
Before work I adjusted the front waistband so these trousers finally sat in the right spot. They were feeling baggy but they now sit nicely.
Here’s Pattern Review’s Winter Street dress made with fabric and notions provided by Pitt Trading.
As a ‘run-of-the-mill-home-sewer’, all of this sewing assistance keeps me creative and out of my lovely husband’s hair.
