Recently I bought some lovely fabrics from Fabric Godmother, Croftmill and Sew Over It. With this one top I ve got no idea where I ll ever find the time to sew it all, but thats a nice problem to have!!
This is my favourite (difficult to photograph!) its wool & stretchy in a 1m40 repeat - black on one side, purple on the other and a gradient in between. Its going to look fab in a dress. This photo really doesn't do it justice.
A grey jersey. for a winter top... I m thinking Tilly Buttons Agnes or maybe a cowl neck
A heavyweight Liberty cotton for a sleeved shift dress:
Liberty tana lawn geometric print:
Apparently this is a Missoni wool- got the end of a roll and I m thinking either a cosy jumper or else I may make up some scarves. I ve not sewn anything like this before, lets see how that goes.
A lightweight jersey that I ll keep for a summer top next year:
And the best news- thanks to the Lidl sale I now have an overlocker!! Yay! I ve got a very sore arm now though as I d not anticipated how much it weighed - pushing a pram with one arm and carrying that with the other hasn't done my arm any favours!! Just need to get some thread for it now and lets see what magic it can work on my jerseys.
What have you bought recently? What do you think of the feather number?!
