In a few days I will be taking a trip down to the big smoke to speak at the Cyhber blogging event. Obviously this calls for a new frock and i do believe a new coat is in order. Now as you know I am rather a fan of coats and those especially with a granny chic vibe.
Very recently I did a swap for these curtains....I do like a good swap, this is why I will never be business woman of the year and forever skint. Any way back to the curtains now when I first saw a picture of said fabric I was beside myself, vintage sanderson already has a rather large chunk of my heart and in a colour way of turquoise & green there couldn't of been a more perfect fabric in my eyes.
I had the perfect project in mind. Carefully the seams were unpicked, pressed, washed and ready for cutting. Pattern was laid out...the first cut, not yet double check again and then for a 3rd time, do I have enough for the all the pieces, is everything facing the right way. Its so hard to cut into such a lovely fabric but i did and everything was okay...phew
I love this pattern size 181/2 which is obviously the perfect vintage size for me and the raglan sleeve seems to be very flattering to my sloped shoulders and slouchy ways. A dream to stitch it is almost done and I just need to decide on a lining...stitch a few button holes and it will be ready for the off....
