I sew. I would like to say I sew a lot, but sadly that wouldn’t be true. I sew a fair amount though, and a variety of items from bags to aprons to dolls to puffs, my current favourite! I’ll sew pretty much anything I fancy or I’m asked to, but… I have never ever sewn clothes.
In 2010 (or was it 2011), I had a new year resolution to make myself a skirt. Turns out new year resolutions were boo and that never happened. This year I’m setting monthly goals which is really working for me; as a result, July seems to be the month which will see me sew my first piece of (hopefully) wearable clothing.
A Friday evening at the bookshop and I came home with two books. I knew which item I’d sew first before I left the shop - a tunic. That Saturday I found the adorable fabric above and it was magic! Even though my original plan was to use a light coloured fabric, the minute I saw those white flamingos on navy… Yep, you know what happened!
Let the fabric cutting begin!
