First of all, a belated happy new year!
What with holidays in Mexico and a poorly mum-in-law there’s not been much time for sewing or blogging, but I’m back!
I’ve not made any firm resewlutions this year, except I am only going to make things with a definite outfit in mind. I have a wardrobe full of handmade clothes but not too many full outfits.
I’m not carrying on the RTW fast this year but I’m only going to buy things which I can’t make and really need (I’ve bought a waterproof coat today!).
After reading about Tilly recent makes of straight style Coco dresses I decided to make one from some fabric in my stash, and also one for my mum. I need more everyday casual clothes for the cold weather, and thought these would look great with some long boots, and they do!
Only trouble is I prefer my mums, and so does she!
The sleeves are the wrong side of the made fabric, so the tones are perfect. Here’s a close up:
The dress is now safely in my mum’s wardrobe (sob,sob!).
Does anyone else find it difficult to give away their makes?
