While I've been waiting for this glorious rain we've been getting to ease up, and for the sun to break through the clouds, I've squeezed in just a bit more sewing. (I think my knitting needles are beginning to feel neglected!)
A home sewn skirt and top.
I made one of my oldest and closest friends her very own wrap skirt. She requested something in blues and I found this gorgeous floral fabric and a very sweet fabric, dotted with tiny little flowers, for the trim. I think these wrap skirts lend themselves to having fun with fabrics.
A pretty Cloud 9 poplin called "Blooming Buds".
A sweet cotton lawn for the trim.
From the leftover fabric of the skirt's trim, I was able to make another sailor top. I shortened the top this time, according to the pattern's instructions, and am happy with how it has turned out. I have made up both of these patterns before. The second time around was easier because I remembered what I had done before. More confidence and less unpicking this time!
There won't be any sewing on my radar this weekend. We are heading off to the beach. The forecast is for partly cloudy days so we will see what the weather brings. Think I will pack my knitting needles though seeing I am leaving my sewing machine behind;)
Have yourself a really happy weekend!
