I seem to be having a few pink moments lately, glad its not blue ones! Am chuffed with my Monday make, just 4 pieces to cut and 5 seams plus hems, what could be easier. Fleece is so forgiving, I cut the sleeves out separately and forgot to turn over the second, so I had 2 right sleeves, oops! But I managed to fudge it as my sewing mentor used to say!
Anyhow this top is right on cue as its rained all day and I waited in for a ” consignment” as I was promised, but of course zilch! So this success cheered me up and will warm me up tomorrow!
Happy sewing everyone
I have been sewing clothes since 12, first on a hand powered Singer with a choice of lock stitch and reverse, and oh boy what production went on with it. I remember with great pride the bakers boy hat created during The Beatles first years of fame. Unfortunately I have no picture of this milliners perfection but I do have one of this my latest effort!
It took three machines and two hours to complete and I wonder which gave me the most joy to make, probably the hat . Anyhow in case you would like to create your own version of this, it is a McCalls 6612 pattern. Very easy , not even a zip to trouble you. The lovely heavy weight fabric I bought online from http://www.dittofabrics.co.uk I recommend the site.
