I am very guilty neglecting this blog recently. I am sorry, but things were a little hectic recently and there was a long pause in my sewing activity, which I am hoping to catch up with in the near future.
Another remake of the recent garments was my "Too Much Information" tunic: though rather sexy and feminine on the picture, it was just simply impractical to wear on its own, having to be covered with a matching cardigan every time. The solution was to add decorative buttons on the edge of the wrap at the back to keep it from opening too low and revealing too much (hence the name). Little adjustment saved the day!
Now let's turn to the plans ahead. It is getting quite nippy here in Ireland and the main need these days is for the warmer clothes- maybe a couple of dresses, and definitely a few skirts, as I discovered that I have none! How did that happen??????
One of the handy patterns I have found , surprisingly is from the Aprils' issue of Burda 2011: very simple, but very versatile pattern ( pictured here is a version from my online fellow seamstress from Burda Fashion site)
Well I am back in my workshop tonight trying this pattern out and hopefully will be posting the results here soon! Make sure you check back!
