The autumn weather is fast approaching so I thought I had better start clothing these sprouting children. I used a pattern from a book I got from Pomadour. It is quite a small fit, as most of the Japanese ones are but I really love it and it only took about 3 hours, a great staple of winter. I got the purple-grey fabric from the Amitie sale last week, 50% off – yippee.
You may not know this about me, but I am a fabric tight-ass. I managed to squeeze this shirt out of half a meter of material as opposed to the 1m recommended. The sleeves couldn’t make it out in one length so I had to add a cuff. I don’t think there was a thread of fabric left!
I also got some seriously cute tights and socks from here too, great services and really quick delivery.
