Make do and mend
Well, tomorrow I start my 3 day P/P tailoring workshop where I will add another fitted jacket to my collection! I'm really looking forward to improving my sewing skills and having 3 childfree sewing days is a luxury of my wildest dreams. (OK, it may not be my wildest dreams but parenthood has a way of tempering fantasy)
I never got round to my basics this month what with one thing and another but it's a theme I'm keen to return to, but first some unfinished business: here is a pile of projects I label "near successes" - with a little bit of reworking I'm sure I can pull off something I am much happier wearing.
You may be able to recognise the shirt dress in there - it's the ruffle people, I just don't like it, was I channeling holly hobby?
I still love the fabric, but I need to make something I feel comfortable in, literally.
