Here’s what I’ve been busy making this year………..
The first make of 2017 was a Molly Top in a chunky sweater knit:
Then I made these pattern weights and a draw string bag for my Secret Valentine Exchange gift. I also make a heart shawl in pink squishy mohair yarn.
More gift making followed. Time for the #sewdowndewsbury goodie bag.
Lekala 5669 – I just love this! It is a top pattern but was really easy to make it into a skirt.
The same dress shortened after my slimming world success
Another Molly Top.... I just love how versatile this pattern is and this wide striped striped ribbed knit is perfect for it.
Simplicity 1783 – A stretch denim skirt
A quick refashion using my hubbies golf top.
McCalls 7577 – The pattern that spurred me on to loose 20 pounds
Vogue 9242 – a top I made as a guest blogger for Minerva Crafts
Simplicity 1613 – a free pattern which came with the Dressmaker magazine in July. Made up in an ITY knit I picked up at #sewupnorth
McCalls 6612 – The Little Red Dress
The Japanese Asymmetrical Top from the Great British Sewing Bee
McCalls 6612 in a striped ponte knit with contrasting sleeves
Just love this and have worn it to death – another McCalls 6612
Yup, you’ve guessed it, another but with hacked sleeves, McCalls 6612
Errrm, not sure how to say thing, but yup, another McCalls 6612 but this time in a scuba knit
A franken pattern – Newlook 6648 and 6730
