Two shirts using the Colette pattern in a state of half sewn intermission. I have so many half finished projects which irritate me no end - I much prefer to start and finish. I just need to rethread my overlocker as the thread keeps breaking, not really that hard, but I just can’t seem to be motivated.
In contrast to my summer clothes, it is time for the kids winter ones after growth spurts the pants are now capris and jackets finish at elbows. I love riffling through patterns and I have found some nice basics at Spotlight on sale which will work with some stash favourites. I think the instant gratification of some little people sewing might help whip me into action.
The pinky mauve will be a trench coat, the pink and purple blend a box pleat dress, if I have enough and the top one a simple skirt for over tights. See what I mean about that pink sneaking into Poppy’s world all the time.
Navy cashmere for Caleb’s trench coat (I have never owned cashmere anything in my life but $15/m it was sooo soft) and some light weight cotton for pants.
More creative spaces over at Kirsty’s house of green, always repainting that lady – brown, then red.
