As I spent most of my weekend shopping (and assembling Ikea furniture), I've managed to have another sewing-free weekend. I did find time to redecorate in here though. Hope you like it, I'm going for a fresh and clean look!
I did do something else this weekend. I was bad.
I saw that Jaycotts had 10% off a number of their patterns.
I've been looking at these first two for a while, so I thought I'd use the sale as an excuse to finally get them!
Vintage Vogue V1171
This is a pattern issued in 1950 originally, but I think the big collar gives it a vaguely 30s feel.
I was inspired to buy this pattern by Suzy who's just sewn a pair of the trousers for the Cupcake Goddess sewalong. I'll definitely be giving the trousers a go but I like the skirt and the jacket too.
New Look 6007
I've been toying with the idea of wearing a cape for some time, then yesterday I saw a woman wearing a beautiful grey wool one in town and decided I need one. I like view D - short and with a collar. Could be good for spring!
