Sewing a sew girl tunic and a lottie blouse
A little while ago, on the 10th of June to be precise!
I posted all about my latest sewing make and my new fave magazine…nothing new then I hear you say….?
Well…. yesterday morning being a Monday, after everyone had gone to work, I snuck back up to bed with a coffee and the latest edition of said fave mag that postie had just delivered.
It was my treat.
I sleepily sipped my coffee and slowly flicked through the mag savouring the moment ….
I nearly fell out of bed, spilling coffee everywhere…..
My ‘Lottie’ blouse by Simple sew was in Love Sewing Magazine issue 3.
I had no idea….They had used a facebook pic and of course I don’t mind at all…..
What a lovely surprise, I did not stop talking about it all day…
Big congrats to the other five readers too….
May I add it is a wonderful, no strike that its a brilliant issue.
Issue 3 is full of projects I actually want to make instead of laugh at!
Some lovely features too, I especially like the one on ‘Merchant and Mills’ as I am a fan.
I recommend you take a look at it.
In this same issue is another free pattern by SewGirl aka Fiona Wheatly
It is a lovely Summer tunic, loose fitting and simply perfect for these warm balmy days we are having here in Dorset.
Of course I have made it already!!!
…..well what is a sewing addict supposed do on her 2 month off summer break?
I like the pattern, it is simple but it has some structure in the form of a neck facing.
I also like that all the info and instructions are in the mag, in picture form…
I used my two new toys a rouleaux loop turner and my air erasable marker pen….fun fun fun.
I also made a copycat vintage tea towel cushion from another article in this same issue…
Do you like?
Sew go get the magazine all you sewers…..
bestest sewing wishes to you today
