Sewing my handmade wardrobe
So far this year…
I have been a sewer for as long as I can remember.
Yes I too made the garments by (tiny) hand that filled my Tressy/Sindy’s wardrobe.
All patiently hand-sewn from leftover scraps that my Nan gave me…. her newly sewn crimplene dress meant pieces of treasure for Tressy and I!
Now and then, over the years I would desert my first love…sometimes by choice, sometimes by life and living.
This year we got back together again and are having the time of our lives.
I took a vow to make more to wear for myself.
The results so far….
Eight garments and more in the planning…..all made from fabric I had in my stash.
This whole rail cost less than 30 pounds!!
If you are a regular here on lazy daisy Jones you will perhaps recognise a few of these makes?
If not let me recap on some of them for you….
inspired by that awesome tv programme the Great British Sewing Bee
worn all summer long.
A ’tilly and the buttons’
well…. I was off with the fairies to sewing land….happy as can be..tra la la and all that!!
Have you joined in yet?
Bestest sunday wishes everyone…I am relaxing today, are you?
