Frilled to Bits!

    1. I’ll probably play with the jacket neckline as a high round neck is no good on me, but that is one for a toile and long consideration, no rush needed. It would be a suit rarely worn as such I’m guessing- I have little need of one inreality, and contrasting coordinates would be more lively [maybe plain trousers and top options to mix with the more outré components]

  1. Those Oki designs are really rather tasty. I love quirky asymmetrical patterns so I’ll be interested to see how you get on with them. All that sticking together- have you any sellotape left after wrapping the Christmas pressies? Like you I need to stop buying fabric as I have a bad case of SABLE (stash accummulation beyond life expectancy- for anyone who hasn’t come across the term before!)

    1. I sew fast enough to combat SABLE [touch wood] but CANNOT stop buying. Must, must must. I would actually like to go back to the days of buying pattern + fabric, I managed fine on that, it’s only in the last 7 years that things changed! No present wrapoping, so sellotape supply is fine! Back to sewing very soon I hope, work and domestic goddess duties have sapped my energy of late.

  2. LOVE the skirt design with the flounces but I no longer wear skirts as the “waistband” slides up to somewhere just south of my bra band line… very uncomfortable. Now I am scheming of ways to design/make that into a dress. hmm…

    1. I’m pretty tubular from ribcage to hips, but if this is for steampunk I would normally wear corset which helps no end! The other trick I would try, If I want to wear it as muggle-wear would be to use a ‘yoga’ waistband, replacing all the top yoke with a stretch fabric. Sorted!

  3. Gorgeous skirt. That is fab that you got your pattern. I had a browse on the Oki site too. There are some lovely things. I do like your choices and know that you will really do them justice. Happy festive fun day, if you celebrate it. 🙂 Xx

    1. We are celebrating quietly and self-indulgently. We ove had lots of delicious goodies as gifts, and the missus is happily watching Beauty & the BEast and singing along. Turkey’s a-cooking, and I think I need a nap. Perfect! Happy Saturnalia to one and all!
