This weekend I have at long last had the time to sit down quietly and sew to my heart’s content. And because I’ve been having such a big clearout on TradeMe (our eBay equivalent) I’ve been able to return to Linnet again (just in case I’d forgotten anything) – although really I need to be saving for the Paris fleamarkets.
More stuff leaving the house today. More things being listed. I love having a massive clear out. And this is quite a ruthless one. I’ve got four months to whittle myself down to my most important belongings.
So I ordered some grey cotton from said only shop in the world, and low and behold it’s double gauze. Now that’s funny because just a week or two ago I thought I would lose my fear of double gauze and buy some of that beautiful Nani Iro I keep longing for but never dared sew.
It’s amazing what one can squeeze out of a half metre of fabric. Although with the dress I’ll be ordering at least 0.6m next time. I had to do very bad things to the sleeves. The shorts are so cute – the cotton crochet lace is from Linnet – I used the pattern from Girly Style Wardrobe , and the dress pattern is from Koharu no Fuku.
