At last I can post what I have been sewing recently. DH has returned from the desert and is off collecting cars from Wellington with a mate. As he is away working for long periods when he returns we (children and I) devote a few days catching him up with all the happenings in our world.
I have been working on a few Style Arc patterns - notably the Ann T-shirt. I love the fit of this T and have eliminated the rouching. This has become my favourite T-shirt and I have a few more cut and ready to sew.
I made this in a Size 20 with few alterations except for lengthening the back to match the front. The fabric came from a lovely shop in Mt Albert from a shopping expedition with the lovely Chris (SIL). It is a cotton lycra and feels smooth and is very cool to wear.
I then moved onto this Simplicity pattern which I have had on the wish list for a while following my cowl-neck sewathon. Cruising through the stash I found a brown check/plaid, which I am unsure of both content and origin, that would look perfect for View A.
I made a Size 20 with some additional width at the bust downwards. It was a simple and quick sew up but I had difficulty with matching stripes at side seams, I am hoping that it really is not noticeable.
View C is now in my sights with a beautiful cotton from the wonderful Global Fabrics. Both tops are part of my travel 6 PAC for our Christmas Trip to Australia.
Finally I made something for DH's babies, to keep them dust free and protected. The photographer and himself spent an afternoon measuring all the babies and I was presented with this...
and made a pattern which became this...
He needs a few more for the rest of the babies so I will be busy making covers for a little while longer.
