Phew! That was a mammoth cutty-sticky-gluey-tapey session. In true Fairy fashion, I’ve put together not one, but FIVE PDF patterns. To whit:
Style Arc Mindie, Etta, and Ann
Katy and Laney tap shorts
A Verb for Keeping Warm, Nell shirt
All went together fine, apart from one panel of the Nell pattern, which didn’t line up with anything much. Weird. I’ve bodged it [also in true Fairy fashion] and sent them an email. Maybe they already know, but who can say?
I then perused the newly arrived delights…and [shock horror] decided to PREWASH some of them. Blimey. Well, there’s no point running the washing machine for one or two pieces, so I hauled out a heap, overlocked the ends, and I’ve set the first batc going. Yep, two machine loads.
Well, I’m on holiday! [sort of- I’m still being kept on tenterhooks about the job situation, the wife’s still insisting on getting rid of my cat on Saturday, she’s invited her cousin to stay, and I just took on a batch of additional marking.]
Tap shorts in deep purple linen/viscose from MyFabrics [I only bought a bit]
Mindi zip mini skirt in red stretch denim
the Nell shirt in my book printed, ‘Doctor Tulloch’ blue/green Tana lawn
…perhaps a maxi By Hand Anna in the lovely viscose twill with poppies
The StyleArc Ann T top will JUST fit onto that panel of ‘diamonds’ from the Textile centre. Remember it? The one in the background.
I then want at least one more Ann top in a fine plain black viscose jersey [assuming it fits OK]
I WOULD have like to do the Kathryn Brenne V9114 skirt in the purple linen, but there’s not enough. It might work in the white/green damask…hmm, not 100% certain yet, the right match for that fabric is vital methinks.
There’s a lovely piece of muted lilac silk to make another New Look tunic while the weather stays good, and some deep blue ponte which could make another Flat Bottom Flo.
That should keep me busy for a few days!
Must do more marking in the morning, then lunch with a pal, so tomorrow may not move me along much. The weekend may be too sociable. Poop. I’ll keep you posted!
Do you cut out and sew in batches?
