Stitching and Wishing for Spring…

Along with the rest of the UK, I’m waiting in vain for a glimpse of warm weather… I’m dressing far too spring-like and spend most days in a permanent shiver, showing off my spring wardrobe in spite of the wind, the frost and the SNOW outside. Tantrums abound.

I have enjoyed stitching for spring, though, even if it’s been far too cold to actually wear the items in question.

At least this one is not intended for wear until the autumn: an overly eager sailor cardigan for a baby not due until September – can you tell I’ve been waiting for this family to have a bump for a LONG TIME!?


The epitome of Easter summed up in one dress for Tilly – albeit far too cold to wear for more than three minutes at a time… Vintage pattern, stripey fabric and cotton pique collar… With obligatory pockets on the bias to negate the need to match the pattern…

And my latest homage to Toast in the form of John Kaldor viscose t-shirt with button placket back… paired with my denim trousers from Colette’s fabulous Juniper pattern… The outfit, I think, is elegant, classy, possibly a little too loose fitting and thus verging on unflattering… But still LOVING the look, despite my attempts at ‘wistful model-esque facial expressions….’

The stitchers from Homespun Living's latest dressmaking course have also completed their first adult shift dress pattern – much to their delight!03-P110069604-P1100700 

What are you making at the moment?

Love the cardigan! I've just cast on the Wee Austine hoodie for my little boy, it was supposed to be for his birthday, but, well, that was on Sunday...
