Make 1: I bought the Mathilde pattern at the Handmade fair and bought the stunning Dragonfly fabric from SewOverIt. I plan to make this up, using the Liberty Chapel print as a highlight- I plan to use that to cover the buttons for the back and to put a little bit of detail on the front and maybe the cuff). The photo doesn't show it too well but the colour of the dragonfly with the colour of the Liberty print work beautifully.
Make 2: Still on my Tilly patterns. I ve already done one Agnes top which I love and now I ve bought an overlocker so I m going to get that up & running & power through another 3 in these fabrics (Assuming I make friends with the overlocking machine ;) ). One is a grey/black reversible ponte, one is a checked stretchy wool and one is a jersey with a gold print on one side. I ll use the gold side only not the front panel and use it in reverse for the sleeves and back so I m not too sparkly!!
Make 5: Next up is another Simplicity dress. I love my first one, and this is going to be a fabric combo. My first one is quite a lightweight fabric and I think it will be even better with something with more body/shape so I ve chased thicker fabrics this time around. The fitted top section is going to be the wool herringbone tweed (I know it just looks black in these pictures, sorry), may add a bit of stripe round the middle, then the denim fabric for the skirt. I need to play around with it. It looks a better plan in reality than on the photo! trust me...
So that should keep me busy for a few months shouldn't it!! I may not necessarily tackle them in this order, but I ll keep you posted with the results! Keep an eye on my Instagram to see the garments unfold . Any better pattern recommendations, let me know
