4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Colette-O SorbettO Pyjama set on: May 05, 2013 12:57:15 PM
I've been playing with patterns recently, a lot of patterns - and we all love a freebie! So I went ahead and had a go at the lovely Colette Sorbetto pleated tank top pattern, available here: http://www.coletterie.com/colette-patterns-news/free-pattern-to-download-the-sorbetto-top

This was super-dooper easy to make, and fun, and I now have a new fave PJ set which is always a total WIN! I used a vintage fabric my grandmother gave me (I have a tonne of this and it's a lovely light-weight cotton but not too light that it's a pain to sew)

I drafted the knickers for my set to my own measurements but have found a cool looking freebie (yey) pattern here: http://www.madalynne.com/amerson-the-details-pattern

Would love to know what you think!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help me make something awesome with this old bedspread! on: April 29, 2013 03:22:56 PM
I picked this single bedspread up from a charity shop yesterday and desperately want to make a dress or something amazing with it! I really can't work out whether the fabric is beautiful or fugly but the colour combo really caught my eye so I had to have it (and those little birdies are SWEET) Those huge scallops are super-cute too so I'd love to keep them as a feature somehow - can anything think how?

I'm reluctant to take it apart until I know what I'm doing with it in case I ruin it somehow! It's a medium weight curtain fabric and I think the print is too much for an entire dress but might work well as a bodice with a lighter maybe lace fabric for the skirt part, and then the scallops for something else? Or worked into a dress somehow? I'm 50/50 on going back to the shop to buy the matching curtains!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 1969 McCall's 9784 shorts made from an old curtain - WIN on: April 05, 2013 03:20:16 PM
So I'm not the best when it comes to following patterns. Too much to pay attention to (more like I can't handle the constant reading and re-reading that comes with pattern reading and moi - more about that in my dyslexia stress-out post over on my blog here: http://www.dearestjackdaw.com/2013/03/pattern-therapy-dyslexia-busting-flirty.html), I like to just go with the flow and see what I can come up with!

BUT, I have to learn.. I HAVE TO! So I decided to sit down and concentrate for the first time in a long time and actually FOLLOW a pattern, the whole way though (ok maybe I made a tweak here and there but not a lot!) And I'm super happy with the results!

The fabric was an old curtain I picked up from a car boot sale ages ago for about 50p (I have so much of this fabric!). Everything else I already had in my stash. Only the best project, 100% FREE!

This is a vintage 1969 McCall's (9784) Misses pattern given to me by my grandmother along with tonnes of other cool vintage patterns. I wanted to start with something simple since I lose concentration so easily (seriously, I have so many half finished dresses!) so I chose the short portion of this two-piece pattern. I love them, so much, and they fit PERFECTLY! I'm deffo going to work my way through the box of patterns to make some more cool stuff! What do you think? I'm definitely going to make some more of these in other cool fabrics ready for summer!

Here's the outcome:
