So its post Christmas, nearing the end of a very long January and I have very little money left for treating myself (make that no money, I just haven’t accepted reality yet!). It’s at this point that I realise I forgot to stock up on the muslin for completing the toile of the starlet jacket so my progress may be a bit slower than planned whilst I order some in even though my bank manager may hate me for doing so.
In the meantime I have printed out the pattern and pieced it together. I really don’t like digital patterns all that much. They satisfy my need for ‘want it now’ but I always feel there’s a little too much of a potential for error on my part. I’m not always hot on accuracy when it comes to paper and sellotape. Plus you can’t beat a lovely tissue paper pattern in a beautifully printed package. In the interim whilst I wait for the toile fabric to turn up I have decided to try out a couple of other patterns that I have been looking at for a while.
The first pattern that I am going to make up is the Burda magazine peplum top featured in the August 2013 edition and available on their site.
Anyway I think that is enough pre-sewing prep work for today! I shall get on to the fun stuff tomorrow! See you soon.
