A stitch in time…

I’ve been working on a few personal sewing projects over the last few months and they are taking me ages! Not because they are particularly tricky (in fact the Colette patterns are a joy to work with), but just because work/ family life come first and personal crafting has to fit in around these other commitments, but I’m getting there, though I fear my Colette Violet blouse may not see much sunshine if I don’t get it finished this week!

So this is what I’ve been up to:

Collette blouse -Violet with short sleeves in white broderie anglais

Colette beignet skirt in a  stretch coral/ red colour…think I’ve cut this a size too big though so might sell it to cover the cost of the fabric so I can start over!

Little tweed jacket -collarless with cropped sleeves and acrylic stone embellishment. I started making neon studs but soon realised that they were too small to fit through the fabric..doh!

I’m also making myself a Duck & Duffel playsuit in this adorable elephant print fabric that I bought on my last fabric ‘haul’ with the fabulous Miss Knit Nat…we probably shouldn’t be allowed out together near clothes/ shoes/ fabric! Having said that, at £2.99 a meter it didn’t break the bank.

Anyhoo here are some snaps…

What sewing projects are on your list? Any new patterns I should look out for?


P.S Have a great weekend all!

  1. Oh but we have so much fun with the fabric and clothes and shoes! Colette patterns and the jacket look fab, I’m yet to start my elephant fabric top – will look super cute in D&D playsuit! x
