I found some 100% cotton from Patons in my stash from about 5 years ago but the pattern in a Prima magazine I had been coveting seems to have gone walkies at the moment. So I will check in with that later...or put out a plea to you crafty folks.
I bought some yarn on holiday in Whitby during May so navy must have been on my mind then. I am thinking about a scarf here...
Over the last two weeks I have been teaching a classic tailored skirt to my group. I don't normally go for this length but I really like it.
The fabric was a remnant for £5. It is a winter weight skirt really (the fabric on top of the pile) but it feels really comfortable worn with my Gertie blouse.
I have quite a stash of navy at the moment in my lovely craft cupboard. Some ribbed jersey, leftovers from Big Sis' sweatshirt, leftovers from my Minerva shift dress and the creme de la creme: 3 metres of navy crepe for a show stopper project later this year - think 'black tie' and let your imagination run wild.
If you see this book for £3.99 like I did in the The Works do get it. I bought it in Strattford on a bloggy meet up. It has brilliant clear instructions on a whole host of sewing techniques and a brilliant classic wardrobe in the back. The only downside is you have to tape PDF patterns together but for that money you have to put the donkey work in.
This skirt starts on the previous page as an A line, then this classic skirt with darts, then this one as a lined skirt, then a button front skirt with a placket, then a pleated skirt with belt loops and a yoke. You see how it grows as you grow. I love it.
Thanks for reading. Today is my last day of freedom, the girls break up from school today so blog posts may have a slight girlie theme for 7 weeks...7 WEEKS!!!
