Half term has been so cold and Miss T has had a terrible cold too, so we haven't ventured out. I instead chose to make up some new clothes. First was a taupe wool dress from a Simplicity pattern, an easy pattern to follow I just need to do some top stitching in a chocolate thread. I have made a couple of alterations to the pattern and hope to make this up again with a few tweaks. The next project was a simple pencil skirt in a chunky cord fabric, such a wonderful bright orange.
I also made up the tunic in a lovely linen, but will have to get a photo of that this weekend, very easy to make up and simple instructions. I am sure I will wear it lots in the summer over a t-shirt.
Here is a snap of where I have been spending so much time, my little sewing space. The wallpaper and paint is dry, just new blinds for the window and it will look warm and cosy. Hope you all have had a great half term.
