the small sewing room

With the weather warming up, my thoughts are turning to sewing for my spring/summer wardrobe.  I wanted to use  two fabrics that I bought from John Lewis last autumn, a navy chambray and this cotton lawn which John Lewis have called Blotchy floral……..surely they could have thought of something a little more charming!PENTAX DIGITAL CAMERA

The jacket is New Look 6028 and a blatant copy of an ideal by fellow blogger Camilla over at Making and Marking, to turn back the sleeves to reveal the lining.
