Under the Weather

Oops! It seems that time has flown just a little bit since my last post. My apologies to all, I’ve been ridiculously busy, and just a bit ill, too!

I have, actually, managed to get some sewing in though, and I do have a finished project just ready and waiting to be photographed, I promise! But, with a cold and sinus issues, I haven’t exactly been ready to have my photo taken. You understand. I’ll see what I can do this weekend – I have some ideas for a fun little photo shoot in my new bathing suit – but I’m not going to push myself.

One thing I have been able to do from the comfort of my couch is do a bit of online shopping. I’m always on the look-out for new patterns to try and fabric to buy, even though I should probably think about using some of the stuff I already have, first.

These few are just some of the patterns I’ve acquired recently! 
I’ve been wanting the Banksia top for quite some time, but I had trouble finding someone near me who stocked it. Amazon to the rescue! A reasonable price, and it was Prime-able! I picked up some pale green-and-white floral cotton fabric at a church thrift store recently that I think will be great for this one.
I’m looking forward to making the shorts version of the Thurlow pants. I bought some black cotton twill from Hart’s Fabric with a voucher I got for my birthday, and I think they’ll be great for summer! 

I got this vintage Butterick pattern from the Selvedge Shop on Etsy, and I think it’s going to be just right for my Mad Men Challenge dress. I did have another pattern in mind, but after making one muslin where the neck was WAY too big, and then another when it was comically small, I’ve decided to start again.

So those are my ideas, and I’m really hoping this cold will just disappear so I can actually muster up the energy to sew something, rather than lounging in my sweatpants and blowing my nose.
