Hello again all. I’m afraid I’ve skipped out on contributing to Sew Stretchy month. Not because I don’t like sewing with knits but mainly because I’ve run out of decent size knit lengths in the stash and only have scraps left over. I was going to make a half slip to wear under slightly thin dresses but I figured that was far too boring so I’ve skipped straight ahead to Sewing Indie.
And what better timing could it be. I have just persuaded by husband, Tobi, that I cannot rely on free patterns any longer and had purchased the Christine Haynes Emery dress, By Hand London Anna dress and Colette Patterns Negroni for Tobi.
I’ve been lusting after the Emery for ages and so she was the first one to be made up. I love a good trawl of charity shops (thrift stores to those outside of the UK) and I found and amazing Dr. Who duvet cover in a new shop in my town and I just knew it needed to be turned into an Emery. Here’s some pictures and for the full post see my blog.
