I thought I'd use McCall's 6519 again, but I didn't think it would be this soon. I was trying to decide what I'd wear to a weekend wedding. The dress code said 'smart casual' and nothing in my wardrobe felt right so I headed for the sewing room. I started pulling out bits of fabric and different patterns and I had just about settled on the Banksia top when I grabbed this fabric. I bought this border print silk from Spotlight when I decided that I needed to add more prints to my wardrobe. I think it's so cool the way the birds change colour; they start out grey, morph into black and then go white.
I've got nothing new to add, I made this up exactly the same as last time, I even paired it with the same pants (different heels though)! Actually that's not quite true, I did do something new, I used French seams for the first time ever. My overlocker doesn't particularly like delicate fabrics and with so few seams I thought this would be the perfect time to give it go.
It cracks me up that the best photo of the top also has a bin and one of my kids in the background :)
The wedding was lovely - although I probably should have worn a skirt - and I really enjoyed getting to spend just a little bit of time with my sewing machine.
