Sunday Sewing

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.

  1. I think it’s a great idea to not use all of the fabric for the lining! How clever!

#football #sport #sports #court #outdoors #optoutside #sky #clouds #bluesky #nightfall #twilight #bluehour #violet The landscape is changing and whilst the trees are still vibrant, many of the fields have been harvested and are looking drab. Looking at Wilfie's expression however, the surroundings don't detract from his enjoyment of the 10 mile run he just accompanied me on. He kept up perfectly and is now snoozing beside me. He's a good dog. •
