My me made may outfits for the last few days
I'm furiously working on a Colette Beignet skirt but man, that's a high maintenance pattern. 15 pieces. It took me an entire day to trace, cut and sew the skirt. At 10pm I'm like, ok still 12 buttonholes, handsew 12 buttons on, do 6 belt loops and hem the outer skirt. Ah, well you know maybe this won't get done tonight. A person's gotta sleep.
But this is what it looked like before I started:
Purple corduroy, hot pink lining. Purple buttons with a high sheen. It's gonna be a killer !
But the most exciting news of all is that my purchases from McCalls pattern sale in the US arrived today. Purchased in the evening of 28 April they arrived (Sydney) today 7th May. That's not bad at all!!
Look at this pattern love :
Now if only I could get this lot happening before the end of May ...
