I thought it was just my computer glitching Mio!

same pattern as yesterday. This one is made from a dress my SIL passed along so I managed to use the original hem and save myself the hassle *lol* As she is much slimmer than me I didn't have enough fabric for full length sleeves but I like 3/4 sleeves anyway  Smiley

Beautiful cardboard tube crafting! I tried something similar myself and it looked like a 5 yr old had done it  Cheesy

I tried another one of the Lekala free patterns today and I'm quite happy with the result, I lengthened it by about 8" as it would have hit me mid belly bulge and that's not a good look on me  Roll Eyes it was a sort of experiment to see how well the custom sizing works on a large bosom when they don't ask for your cup size to make the pattern,however you can fill in extra info like "low bust" or "wide bust". It's not 100% perfect but it's close.




I know horizontal stripes make things appear wider but the first pic is crazy wide LOL I don't know what has happened there as my photo is OK

I made a skirt from a free pattern on the Lekala website, I had to trace the pattern from my lap top as I don't have a printer, it was a PITA to do but I think the skirt came out nice enough  Smiley I wouldn't normally wear checked fabric but it was a huge piece from my stash so I knew I would have enough to make my skirt.

The legs belong to my Junker Jane style bunny who is attached to my mirror frame  Grin I have a lot of swappsies dotted around my craft room.

Same pattern, another variation. This one has pockets but no slit as I didn't want to spoil the embroidery. I also cut it longer to use the whole piece of fabric. I love Indian textiles the colours are always so vibrant and I do love colour  Grin last summer I bought three Salwar Kameez sew-it-yourself sets for under 5 each. Each pack contains enough fabric for pants (salwar) tunic (kameez) and a chiffon scarf (dupatta) This purple top and the red one I posted earlier are from those sets.I'm glad to have finally got around to making something with the fabric.

Posing in my new hat  Wink I'm currently rummaging in my supplies for things I can embellish the hat with, I need to make them removable so I can have different looks.

Bloom #2
modified to fit the piece of fabric I had available so this one is less full overall, the neck isn't as wide and the armholes aren't as deep, also no pockets. I still love it and will make more  Grin

Having a break from baby stuff and making myself some new clothes. I recently found free patterns on Tina Givens website, printable pdfs if you have a printer, traceable pita if you haven't  Wink I gave the Bloom dress a try yesterday using a duvet cover my friend Fi gave me for crafting purposes  Grin
It was supposed to be just a muslin for fitting purposes but I've worn it all day today Cheesy




I LOVE the side seam pockets! When I make it again I'll adjust the neckline so it isn't as wide. I added the sequin appliqu (cut from a pillowcase!) to disguise the bad join on the neck binding  Roll Eyes
