Hmm, I seem to be suffering a post-holiday lull in my sewing. Or more precisely in my blogging.
I did finish 3 knit tops I had already cut out before going on holiday. But they were all basically wearable muslins – testing out my Knit Top Block in different sleeve variations with fabrics from my stash that I feel iffy about & willing to sacrifice to experiments. So I’m not feeling inspired to take photos and report on them.
Instead, I’m planning on my next projects…These will have to be stuff for my 11-year-old niece before she outgrows the measurements I took!
It’s a bit crazy really – volunteering to make her clothing. She’s not yet cloth obsessed. Their household is comfortable enough that they can buy some nice clothing. There seems to be plenty of fun RTW already. She lives far far away. All of which means that what I make may not be that exciting for her or even fit well. But the fabrics & patterns have been bought. So I’m determined to get my money’s worth!
Here’s the plan:
And those of your with Tweeny daughters, do these plans scream Unhip Aunty?
I need Tweeny opnions!
