It’s beginning to look a lot like …Posted: November 17, 2013
Christmas won’t happen, unless I get my finger out!
The Eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed there hasn’t been much sewing going on around here. I’ve lost my mojo, don’t know where it went, but it needs to come back soon. In a rash moment I promised my mum I’d make her some clothes. She’s got it into her head that I meant she would have them for Christmas, although I don’t remember saying that, exactly.
I have three lengths of jersey in mum approriate colours, and she requested a skirt like the one I made last year, but shorter. And two tops, with long sleeves. No trouble at all, I assured her. And promptly put it to the back of my mind.
So, much as I would love to be joining in the jolly japes over at Cake with the Red Velvet Sewalong, instead today I traced off Burda 8998. It’s for Momma. For Christmas.
The fabric doesn’t photograph too well in artificial light, but it’s black with a pretty ditsy floral print. Cream leaves, teal roses and some teensy purple flowers, I bought it from Croft Mill. I’ll be making a long sleeved version, just need to check with Her Ladyship whether she would prefer a round neck or a vee. Then tomorrow I will have to get on with it, mojo or no.
