I've been collecting old Enid Gilchrist dressmaking books for a while now ... this is the first dress that I've made from them. It was so easy and fits great I now can't wait to make more!(there's more enid info on my blog)
I made this baby quilt with a mixture of traditionally pieced, and liberated pieced blocks (LOVE the look of the liberated houses )... the top is machine pieced and then hand quilted onto a polar fleece backing, using embroidery thread
I bought 5 odd balls of Blossom from Lincraft in an amazing markdown sale (24c a ball!) Working this basic tee top-down meant that I could just keep going until the yarn ran out...can't believe that I got a full length top for such an awesome price The pattern is written up on my blog
I bought this old McCalls (1983) pattern for a top/dress from the op-shop for 20c. I love how it turned out, but I'm thinking that it's probably more an apron/pinny than a 'wear out' top ... ... and anyhow, a girl can never have too many pinnies, right? (there's a side view and pattern piccy on my blog )
What started out as a bag full of assorted grey yarn from the Op Shop.... ...ended up as a really warm jumper, in readiness for our cold Aussie winter! It was knitted top down on size 6mm needles, following the basic raglan instructions in Barbara Walker's 'Knitting from the Top'
This is my slightly modified Bad Penny by Stephanie Japel It has added waist shaping, no lacy increases or edges, and is more cropped than the pattern. It was really quick and easy and I can't wait to make more!
