Last Monday I woke up wanting to sew. It’s a long time since I woke up with ‘the urge’!
I was meeting my crafty friends for lunch and ‘needed’ something new to wear. So after a rummage through my used patterns I decided upon McCalls 6612.
A dead easy pattern which I can throw together in an hour or so. It’s actually the first pattern I used when I got back into sewing in 2013, though it took me all day to sew up the first time as I was a bit rusty.
I wasn’t 100% happy with it, and it didn’t feel quite right, but I wore it. When I got home after the lunch I had a rethink and decided to finish the sleeves with a band of opposite fabric.
I’m a great believer of everything happening for a reason, and here’s proof of that. So thankyou Sewing Gods for my nearmiss and helping me creative something a little bit different which I love.
Good for you! Who else but someone who had their sewjo back would sew up a new shirt to wear out the same day.
I always seem to sew well with a deadline, and tend not to get distracted by a shinier project.
Yeah for waking up ready to sew, and for re-doing a bit you didn’t like!!! What will be your next adventure – another goodie for the new house? A kind mend for a friend? Something special for your own Special Self?!
I have a date next Friday Del so I’m wondering if I should make a new frock🥰🥰
definitely! 👗 but you can choose a different colour and style. 😉 😘
Lovely – and nobody else will have one like it!
Your hair is looking very pretty at the moment – are you growing it out?
I don’t know what’s happening with the hair do, it just keeps growing, I’m sat with a head of foils on it at the minute so might be a bit different this week x
Good for you–the unusual aspects of it make it more striking to me than it would be otherwise. It’s great with the black leggings. You’re looking quite fit these days!
Thankyou😊😊I’m trying to loose a few pounds that have sneaked on🙈🙈
In general, you’re looking very good.
It looks great. I would never had thought of doing what you did.
Nice save! I love colour blocked garments. Like putting together a great looking jig saw puzzle!
