There's not much action in the sewing room because it's currently having a makeover. I'll show some pictures once it's all done, but I'm pretty excited. Sorry about the picture layout below - they're supposed to be side by side, which they are when I'm drafting but not when I preview the post. Anyone know how to fix that? Moving right along...
Now that the weather has turned in Melbourne I've started thinking about what I want for the cooler months. Mum and I had a trip to Spotlight when she visited on the weekend and she's quite the enabler (somehow I ended up with two bags of fabric and Mum bought nothing!). I find Spotlight can be very hit or miss, but this time I got lucky.
This black and grey houndstooth wool blend (80% wool. 20% nylon) will hopefully become view b of Butterick 5685. Hmm, I think I was influenced by the pattern picture.
The eggplant purple ponte knit will become view b of Butterick 5672 (my camera really struggled with the colour).
The bright navy ponte knit will become Vogue 1257 (which I know has some sleeve issues to be addressed so we'll see how that goes).
I can't wait to get started.
