I was very lucky and won some great sewing goodies
. Firstly this pattern, Butterick 5612 from Philippa. She didn't tell me in advance so it was a lovely surprise when it dropped through the letterbox. I have already sewn up view A and still have to blog about it.
Jessica that she had offered as part of
Spring Cleaning Swap Meet. I still have to photograph the cardigan. She was generous enough to include some fabrics. There is a black knit fabric, some stripey jersey and this cute cotton. Hmmmm......my mind is whirring with ideas. There is enough of the black for a pair of jersey trousers - and I have several pattern choices. I just have to choose either a drapey flowey (is that a real word?) pair or a more fitted style. The stripes I have earmarked for a top if I can figure out cutting and pattern placement. I was thinking of using the japanese doll cotton for a skirt for Little I.
Alessa's giveaway. There is a large piece of the grey/pink floral striped cotton. It is a really nice light weight and I was thinking of a dress.
The other pieces are smaller and I am planning to use them for my little girls.
...it is the Butterick top from Philippa's pattern. I will
witter on write a constructive review soon about it. I have doubts as to whether it suits me greatly but I have worn it lots anyway as it is so light and ideal for summer days when I don't want to have arms out. Oh and please feel free to laugh at my unfortunate bad haircut. Happily it is now grown out a bit. It was cheap and sometimes you gets what you pays for. A lesson learnt. I have to say a big thank you to Jessica, Alessa and Philippa.
So a big thank y
