Left in the Box-of-Abandonment [Not yet consigned to the Crate of Shame, but who knows what will trasnpire?]…
- The Bombshell swimsuit which is ALMOST good but needs tweaking. But who needs a swimsuit in November? Not this Fairy.
- Style Arc Daisy trousers in black linen: too wide, weird pockets. the fabric is worth saving though, so they must be re-cut
- Tom & Linda Platt wide leg trousers, black denim. Do we see a pattern forming?
- Mimi G wide leg trousers, made with a yoga style waistband. And not getting worn. Oh dear
Not TOO bad, so now I can allow myself to start looking forward. I pulled this lot out. I really need some trousers! I keep wearing the same pair over and over, and I get bored easily, even by black trousers. I have NO stretch fabrics in stash now though, beyond scraps and remnants, so will need to order some ponte pretty sharpish.
The long zip-up coat will be in red wool with ‘astrakhan’ collar and cuffs. That Game of Thrones costume dress/tunic NEEDS TO BE MADE, just because. The sleeves! The cape! OMG! Danaerys had all the looks last season… Tiltons because what else does any punkish art teacher type wear? That Betzina zip-up tunic is calling too and although I’m not going for pleather [post menopause? Are you MAD?] I do want to have a go at it.
The denim coat from this pattern is getting plenty of wear, as are the long sleeveless jackets I made from the converted ‘Toni’ dresses, so I think this will be a good work horse. I think I have JUST enough of this green ponte left from my Jacinta maxi dress…
I also still have the Okistyle dress in tartan and denim to sew up, it had dropped to the bottom of the stack. I want to knock up a couple of bralettes for the missus and maybe a bag or 2 for Xmas pressies.
Oh and any suggestions for what to do with this little oddness would be gratefully received. Apparently it’s Louis Vuitton, stretch silk satin, but I only have about 1metre here…it’s weird and I don’t know quite what drew me to it, but it feels LUSCIOUS. Suggestions please!
