A month in Paris: the couture dress!

Today marks exactly two months since I arrived in Paris and one month since I departed.  I guess it’s about time I wrote about the dress!

The primary objective of this couture techniques workshop was to sew a custom-fit dress in the style of Madame Grès.  Our dresses were based on one of her designs from the 60s, with some slight variation (the original had an exposed zipper in the front–eek

Tilly and the Buttons Coco Top

I’m always trying to squeeze garments out of pieces of fabric that are too small.  I had some fabric leftover from my Colette Moneta dress, which I decided to get a Coco top out of to wear under one of my many dungaree dresses!  I had to get creative with the cutting layout as usual, […]

Vogue 1027: a faux wrap dress

I’ve used several different shades of this viscose jersey over the years. It always sews up really nicely. I’m also quite fond of Vogue patterns. I find […]

DIY Tutorial y patrones: SUDADERA de punto para niΓ±o

DIY patrones ropa niño sudadera

Holaaaaa!!!! Hoy os traigo una sudadera de punto finita para niños!!!! Yo se la he hecho a Santiago pensando en el verano, aunque no os lo creáis, por las noches resfresca un poquito o cuando vuelves tarde de la playa que el cuerpo se queda un poco más fresquito de lo normal.

Nosotros somos de aprovechar en terrazas el verano, y tanto en Vigo como en Málaga, al lado del mar, por la noche bajan un poquito las temperaturas… Yo suelo ponerme una chaquetita, así que pensando en esos momentos, que van a ser muchos este verano, le hice esta sudaderilla a mi gordi.

Para la abertura lateral del cuello le coloqué unos botones de presión como los que llevan los pijamas los niños, para hacerlo más fácil y cómodo de poner y quitar.

Sewing Around the World – Schnittchen Katja shirt


Pattern: Katja shirt by Schnittchen
Size: 38
Alterations: none
Fabric: striped jersey viscose + lace trim c/o Supercut

Today I’m happy to present my project for Sewing Around The World, an idea of German indie pattern company Schnittchen involving 12 sewing blogger from different countries throughout 2016.
I’m following Silvia from Germany who sewed the Joanna coat and Julie from France, with the Lola cardigan.

My own pick was the Katja shirt, a knit kimono top with a relaxed fit, an optional triangular appliqué and two different length options (I used the shorter one). The pattern is available both as a PDF and as a printed pattern, at very affordable prices, and has instructions in either German or English. 

So… Why did I choose this pattern?

To be completely honest, it was the result of compromise. I LOVED the patterns that the two previous bloggers chose, so they were not an option.

The other patterns I liked didn’t have English instructions (such as the Nina pants) and I also wanted something easy and quick to sew, because I thought I would be knee deep in moving into my new home in March (which is not the case yet… don’t ask).

I’m also always up for trying new silhouettes that are out of my comfort zone (meaning, basically anything that doesn’t have a cinched waist).

Am I happy with my Katja shirt?

Uuunnnh… Yes and no.
These are the things I like:
  • The comfort: while I don’t think this is particularly flattering on me, I can’t deny it’s really comfortable and snuggly. After taking these photos in the late afternoon, I didn’t take it off until I changed in my PJs.
  • The V: I think it makes the shirt unique and gives you the possibility to use many trims.
    I chose lace, but Supercut also sent me some gold piping that would have looked pretty nice with it.
    At the same time, it’s an appliqué, so it will add weight to the shirt and it will make the neckline seam significantly more bulky.
    If you don’t like the V, it’s optional, so you can forget about it.
  • The milted corners: Katja has little slits on the side seams and they are finished with milted corners, which are easy to sew but give a super nice finish.

This viscose is not the easiest to sew.
I gave up matching stripes on the sides after unpicking a couple times, out of frustration.
Now, for the things I don’t like:
  • The pattern: Multiple parts of the pattern do not match, specifically the front and back sides and the shoulder of the appliqué with the main shirt.
    I am getting more and more picky with patterns ever since starting taking patternmaking classes, but things not matching up are really annoying, period, no matter how skillful you are.
    Also, the neckline band is cut on the bias and that’s unnecessary, unless you’re using a knit with very little stretch.
    EDIT: Silke, creator of Schnittchen patterns, explains:
    Concerning the bias tape: this pattern piece had to be constructed as bias tape because you can sew Katja also with cotton so to say with fabrics without ANY elastic. So we had to construct the neckline band as bias. This is also the reason for the quite wide neckline…Concerning the side seams: the length of the side seams fit perfectly, however we had to construct the curve in the front side seam different to that in the back because we left out the darts in the front pattern piece. So these (the darts or better to say the width of the darts) were “turned” to side seam. We needed to do this because in the front piece you have to have more width because of the busts..”
    (More in the comment section)
  • The fit: this is JUST personal preference, but this shirt has a lot of ease and I just don’t like it. It makes me look so much bigger than I am.
    The neckline is too wide (again, for my taste), and the bottom is flared, which I don’t think is too flattering on this length.
  • The instructions: the instructions that come with the pattern are VERY essential. You might not care in the least for this, but I do like my instructions to be clear and thorough, especially for beginners patterns. I guess this has to do with the affordable price of the pattern: more pages and illustrations = higher costs.
    Schnittchen does offer a photo tutorial for Katja (which I could only find in German), and that’s great, but that means you need a device and an Internet connection while you sew. 
All in all, I enjoy my finished top but I think this pattern could use some improvements. 

If you like a loose fit, and are looking for a comfy top pattern with unique details at a reasonable price, this might be the one for you!

Thanks Schnittchen for including me in this beautiful tour, I’m really grateful πŸ˜€

Modellomaglia Katja di Schnittchen
Taglia: 38
Modifiche: nessuna
Tessutojersey di viscosa a righe + nastro in pizzo c/o Supercut

Oggi, sono lieta di presentarvi il mio progetto per Sewing Around The World, un’idea della compagnia indie tedesca di cartamodelli Schnittchen, a cui partecipano, cucendo modelli di questo designer, 12 blogger di cucito da tutto il mondo durante il 2016.
Io seguo Silvia dalla Germania che ha cucito il meraviglioso cappotto Joanna e Julie dalla Francia, con il cardigan Lola.

La mia scelta è ricaduta sul top Katja, una maglietta a kimono con vestibilità molto rilassata, un’applique triangolare opzionale e due diverse opzioni di lunghezza (io ho tagliato la più corta). 
Il modello è disponibile sia come PDF che in versione stampata, a un prezzo piuttosto conveniente, e le istruzioni sono disponibili in tedesco o inglese. 

Ma quindi… Perchè ho scelto questo modello?

Ad essere completamente sincera, è stato il risultato di un compromesso. Mi piacevano moltissimo i due modelli usati dalle ragazze prima di me (ma non potevo fare una ripetizione); gli altri modelli di mio gusto non avevano le istruzioni in inglese (tipo i pantaloni Nina) e inoltre volevo qualcosa di rapido da cucire, perchè al momento della scelta pensavo che a marzo sarei stata fino al collo in mezzo al trasloco (cosa che per vari motivi non è ancora successa, stendiamo un pietoso velo). 
Infine, accetto sempre di buon grado nuove “sfide” per quanto riguarda le silhouette da indossare (nel mio caso, qualsiasi cosa non sia stretto in vita).

Mi piace il mio top Katja?
Eeeeeeehhh… Sì e no.

Queste sono le cose che mi piacciono: 
  • La comodità: anche se trovo che questo top non mi valorizzi particolarmente, non posso negare che è estremamente comodo e coccoloso. Dopo aver scattato queste foto nel tardo pomeriggio, non me lo sono tolto finché non sono andata a dormire, e l’ho scambiato col pigiama.
  • La V: Trovo che renda il top unico e che ti dia la possibilità di usare un sacco di passamanerie. Io ho optato per il pizzo, ma Supercut mi aveva anche mandato del profilo dorato che sarebbe stato carinissimo.
    Allo stesso tempo, ricordate che la V è un applique, e quindi aggiungerà peso al top e renderà la cucitura dello scollo più spessa.
    Però, se a voi non piace, è assolutamente facoltativa.
  • Gli angoli squadrati (tipo tovaglia): Katja ha degli spacchetti nelle cuciture dei fianchi rifinite con angoli quadrati (per intenderci, quelli con la diagonale). Sono semplici da cucire e danno veramente una bella finitura. 
Questa viscosa non è semplicissima da cucire.
Dopo aver scucito i fianchi un paio di volte, mi sono rassegnata al fatto che le mie righe non avrebbero corrisposto
(troppa frustrazione per fare altrimenti!)
E ora, le cose che non mi piacciono:
  • Il modello: ho trovato più pezzi del modello che non combaciavano; i peggiori erano il fianco davanti e dietro, ma anche l’applique non combacia sulla spalla del pezzo davanti.
    Mi rendo conto che da quando studio modellistica sono più esigente, ma si tratta di controlli basilare che una modellista dovrebbe fare sempre, e mi dà veramente fastidio trovare questo genere di errore in un modello commerciale.
    Inoltre, la striscia per lo scollo viene fatta tagliare in sbieco, cosa completamente inutile a meno che il vostro tessuto sia veramente poco stretch.
  • La vestibilità: si tratta di gusto personale, ma questo top ha veramente tantissima vestibilità. Avrei tranquillamente potuto tagliare due taglie in meno e avere una maglia comunque comoda. Così larga proprio non mi piace, specialmente con questa svasatura piuttosto pronunciata sul fondo.
    Sempre a proposito di gusto personale, non mi piace lo scollo, troppo largo per essere così alto.
  • Le istruzioni: le istruzioni incluse nel modello sono MOLTO stringate. Magari a voi non importa e preferite cucire senza nemmeno guardarle, ma a me piace che le istruzioni siano complete e dettagliate, specialmente se si tratta di un progetto per principianti (che hanno bisogno di essere guidati).
    Immagino però che la questione sia legata al prezzo piuttosto basso del modello: più pagine e illustrazioni o foto = costo più elevato.
    Schnittchen offre comunque un fototutorial per Katja (che però ho trovato solo in tedesco), ed è fatto molto bene, ma ciò significa che voi dobbiate avere a disposizione un dispositivo e una connessione internet mentre cucite. 
Tutto sommato il risultato non mi dispiace (lo indosserò in situazioni di comfort), ma credo che il modello avrebbe bisogno di una messa a punto.
Se a voi piacciono i top loose e volete un modello per una maglia comoda e con dettagli particolari a un prezzo contenuto, magari Katja fa per voi!
Grazie ancora a Schnittchen per avermi incluso in questo tour del mondo!

 Tutorial y patrones gratis Jersey de ochos para bebé

Hola a todas!!!! Los cólicos de Santiago han dado mucha guerra durante los primeros meses, el pobre se retorcía de dolor y no había manera de calmarlo… La única forma en la que podía dormir o estar más o menos bien, era estar en brazos, piel con piel con su mamá y nada más. Así que me he pasado con el peque encima unos mesesitos bastante entretenidos πŸ˜€ La verdad que pasados los tres meses todo ha mejorado. Lo peor no es tener toooodddoooo el día en brazos a tu hijo y no poder hacer mucho… lo peor es la gente que a cada instante o cuando pueden te dice: “UUYYYY ESTE NIÑO SE ESTA ACOSTUMBRANDO MUCHO A LOS BRAZOS”… Yo menos mal que paso y no entro mucho al trapo, pero dan ganas de decir unas cuantas cosas, y sobre todo que no voy a dejar a mi hijo llorando de dolor, NI DE BROMA, así se me caigan los brazos!!! 

Tres meses después el niño está perfectamente, se entretiene bastante en su hamaquita, su gimnasio, su cuna…. Vamos, que no le gusta mucho estar en brazos, PARA QUE LUEGO DIGAN!!!! En fin….

Durante este periodo, he aprovechado para tejer bastante, porque como se pasaba casi todo el tiempo dormidito inmobil, además que se ve que el movimiento al tejer lo relajaba bastante… Este jersey comencé a tejerlo un día que estaba aburrida ya de pasar horas con el gordi… Y mira, que bien, encontré la manera de cuidar a mi niño y aprovechar el tiempo a la vez πŸ˜€

Brume skirt and 2nd Il Grande Favorito

 

This is the first Brume skirt I’m making, but it sure ain’t the last!
I remember when Eleonore released her jersey collection for Deer & Doe and I loved both patterns, the Brume skirt and the Ondée sweater, so much that I ordered them right away.
But it took me some time to make them… At the time I didn’t have my serger yet and I didn’t really feel like sewing them on my sewing machine. Now that my serger and I are close friends, it feels like every project I make is in knits πŸ˜‰
 

 

The pattern is quite easy to make, you just need to be precise. It took me 1 hour from cutting the fabric to wearing the skirt, this is the fastest I have ever made a garment! I can predict at least a couple more of this pretty skirt…
I want to make the knee length version in black, it looks so elegant and effortlessly chic.

The jersey I used is quite heavy, it’s sweater fleece I bought last year in Bennytex, Paris. The good thing is underwear lines are not really an issue, but seams are a little bit bulky. The only problem I have is linked to the fabric: it has the amount of stretch needed but not much recovery and the waistband stretched out after the first wear. I might add an elastic as adviced in the instructions.
This really is a great knit pattern: easy and fast to make, great style and basic enough to wear with everything. Now I need to make the Ondée sweater to complete the look πŸ˜‰

 

 

I’m also wearing my 2nd Il Grande Favorito sweater by Isabel Kramer, knitted last summer and worn so much this winter. Changes made: shorten length on body and sleeves. Wool: Cascade Yarns Eco+ in West Point Blue Heather bought at Lil’Weasel.
I love this pattern, I have 3 versions of this sweater and I’m sure there will be many more!

.

 

¡Es la primera falda Brume que hago, pero no será la última, os lo aseguro!
Pedi los dos patrones de la collección jersey de Deer & Doe a su salida pero como todavía no tenía mi remalladora, esperarón hasta ahora.
 

 

El patrón de la falda Brume es fácil de hacer y muy rapido. Tardé 1 hora desde cortar la tela para acabarlo, es mi récord personal πŸ˜‰
El jersey utilizado es un poco grueso demás pero tiene bastante stretch. Lo malo es que una vez estirado, no recupera su forma anterior y la cintura me queda grande ahora (le pondré una goma).
 

 

El jersey que llevo es mi segundo Il Grande Favorito de Isabel Kramer, lo hice este verano y me lo he puesto ya un montón de veces. ¡Me encanta este patrón! Esta versión la he hecho más corta de cuerpo y de mangas con una lana tan bonita, la Cascade Yarns Eco+ en color West Point Blue Heather, comprada en Lil’Weasel.

.

 

Voici ma première jupe Brume mais je peux d’ors et déjà vous dire qu’elle aura des petites soeurs!
Je me souviens qu’à la sortie de la collection jerey de Deer & Doe, j’avais adoré les deux patrons, la jupe Brume et le seat Ondée, à tel pint que j’avais passé commande en deux temps trois mouvements.
Bon, il en aura fallut du temps pour coudre cette jupe… C’est que je n’avais pas encore de surjeteuse à cette époque et que j’avais moyennement envie de coudre du jersey avec ma machine. Mais comme maintenant, ma surjeteuse et moi on est super potes, je ne couds presque plus que du jersey πŸ˜‰
 

 

Le patron (vous le connaissez toutes et vous l’avez certainement dans votre armoire) est simple à faire, un peu de précision suffit et surtout, il est super rapide. J’ai mis 1 heure en tout pour la finir, découpe du tissu comprise! C’est mon record perso!
Vous pouvez être sûr que d’autres versions vont suivre, par exemple la longueur genou en noir, tellement élégante et décontractée à la fois (et oui, ça reste du jersey donc parfait pour bouger toute la journée).

Pour le tissu, c’est un molleton acheté chez Bennytex l’hiver dernier. Il est peut-être un peu épais, mais au moins on ne voit pas les lignes de sous-vêtements dessous (par contre on voit les marges un peu épaisses). Il est stretch comme il faut sauf qu’il n’a aucune résistance à la déformation et la ceinture est devenue trop lache après le premier essai πŸ™ Je pense y remédier en ajoutant un élastique à l’intérieur de la ceinture comme préconisé dans les instructions pour ce genre de tissus en coton sans élasthanne.
Vous l’aurez compris, à part la mésaventure de la ceinture déformée, je suis aux anges avec cette petite jupe. La forme est suffisamment simple pour être portée avec tout, les découpes originales lui donnent un côté trendy, elle se fait en un rien de temps, que demander de plus? Un petit sweat Ondée pour completer la tenue évidemment!

 

 

Et je porte aussi mon 2nd pull Il Grande Favorito d’Isabel Kramer, patron chouchou de tricot! Je l’ai tricoté cet été et il a beaucoup été porté cet automne où il faisait moche à Valencia (alors qu’on a un mois de janvier à 20 – 25º, allez savoir!). J’ai raccourci la longueur du corps et des manches. Tricoté en Cascade Yarns Eco+, coloris West Point Blue Heather, achetée chez Lil’Weasel.
J’adore ce patron de pull, j’en ai fini un troisième et il y en aura d’autres!

DIY Tutorial Jersey Princesa Charlotte (patrones gratis)

DIY Tutorial Jersey Princesa Charlotte patrones gratis


Holaaaaaa!!!! Por fiiinnnnn puedo compartir uno de los diy más esperados y más difíciles de explicar a través de vídeo tutorial, es este jersey de bebé que le hice a mi gordito inspirado en el jersey que lució la princesa Charlotte de Inglaterra en su presentación.

DIY Tutorial Jersey Princesa Charlotte patrones gratis
No es complicado de tejer para nada, pero para explicarlo lleva su tiempo y la edición del vídeo me ha llevado días. Siento mucho el retraso, pero no ha sido por ganas de compartirlo, si no por falta de tiempo!!!

A conjunto de este jersey hicimos estos patucos tan bonitos, y compartimos el tutorial y los patrones hace tiempo.


Este jersey es talla de primera puesta, si utilizáis las mismas agujas de tejer y la misma lana que yo utilicé. Además yo hago el punto bastante apretado. Estos tres factores: agujas, lana y presión del punto, pueden modificar la talla. Si lo queréis hacer más grande podéis utilizar unas agujas de 2,5 mm para la misma lana y os quedará una talla más grande.

Lindy Petal skirt – with a stretch piping hem

I kid you not, this is a jersey although it looks like a denim, doesn’t it? it’s quite a robust jersey, but has plenty of stretch and is most definitely not a ponte- it just has a clever twill-like effect to its weave.  Zoe and i both fell for the possibilities when we saw it […]

Grey knit dress twice over // And a quick how-to

Inspiration usually hits me like a brick. One minute I want for nothing and the next all I can think about is a long sleeve, grey, knit dress. My first thought was to make it from scratch. I already had a personal pattern for a sleeveless, fitted knit dress. I just drafted sleeves and extended the sleeve arms and the (ever so slightly tapered) bottom hem to the length I wanted. You could easily modify any closely fitted T-shirt pattern to make a dress like this. I was going to look up some patterns for you, but Creative Chick has already done the research and I see no point in re-inventing the wheel. Check out her very comprehensive summary list of top patterns, with a quick description of each. For a dress like this, you will need a close fitting T and very stretchy jersey. A wide variety of necklines would suit it. Once you have a T-shirt pattern that fits perfectly, simply extend the arms in a tapered fashion to the length you want. I’m fond of ultra long arms right now so I …

Vogue 1448, a dress and some doubts

Hmm…..I have doubts. On this one. Which is so unusual for me. Maybe its the fact that I sewed up this dress just as autumn is tiptoeing into the area – although today it was around 88˚F, a shorts and t-shirt kind of day so what am I talking about?
For some reason when this pattern was released I was instantly drawn to it and just had to sew it up this summer. Vogue 1448, a DKNY design. So I did, and now I have doubts. Which is a rare thing for me. Usually I know exactly what I am making and either like, really really like or absolutely love. I wonder what it is about this dress? Another thought, typically when I sew a new pattern I can visualize where I would wear it. Casual clothes – no brainer. A more formal dress – ready for a party invite. Classic blazer – wear all winter long. But while I sewed this one I just couldn’t picture where I would wear it.
and a little caveat – I took these photos in my sewing room with the camera timer late one afternoon in a fit of uncertainty. So maybe just a little awkward? Also I lightened them up a bit because of the afternoon shadows and now my skin looks weird.
Anyway…

One reason is fabric choice. And I’m not sure if it’s the fabric in general, or the choice of this fabric with this dress. Looking at the fabric I do like it, but it’s a bit muted for me. In a top to wear with jeans or something it would have been good. This dress is a fabric hog, it takes 3.5 yards of 60″ for size 12. That is a lot for a dress for me – I can usually get a sleeveless dress for my not tall frame onto one yard or so. Consequently I ordered some fabric from Girl Charlee to use. Total fabric investment about $ 18 so I can’t complain there. But that should have been a hint – that I was willing to sew it up – mostly for the fun of seeing how it all went together – but not willing to splash out on a $10 – $20 yard fabric.

How about some details? Here is the dress on the form. I had to do some adjustments to get a fit on the bodice and am quite happy with those adjustments. But this is one of those dresses where I think a lot of people might be unhappy with the final fit if no adjustments had been done. Details below.

and back view. With the self-fabric belt tied a bit snug on the dress form so you can see that it is supposed to blouse above the back waist. There is actually elastic just at the center back waist to pull it into the body.

Ok let’s get down to the fitting details.

Pattern alterations Vogue 1448

I did make a muslin of these two pieces – that’s all I needed. That skirt would fit in any case so I just used some white knit fabric I found at a garage sale for the bodice parts.
Firstly, I used a size 12 and tapered to a size 14 at the waist, which was unnecessary. Since it is gathered at the waist I ended up removing that at the waist.

  1. Reduced the center back by about 1 inch at neckline tapering to about 3/8 inch at waist. When I cut it out I added back a tiny bit at the top so more like 3/4 inch.
  2. Shortened the back waist length by 1/2 inch. Usually I take away more here but I didn’t want to eliminate the blousing at the back waist.
  3. Lengthened the front bodice by 1 inch so the waist wouldn’t ride up towards the bust. I used my gather the front into the back as if it were a hidden dart technique used also here (and explained)
  4. Adjusted the wrap portion at the center front, changing the straight line to a curved one which adds a bit a the center overlap, I like the front to have a bit of a curve this way and find it makes any wrap much easier to wear. Had I not done this it would have been very low. As a lot of these Vogue designer patterns are. Maybe if you are a 6 foot tall glamazon it works but not on short me.
  5. Raised underarm by about 3/4 inch. Maybe I have short arm depth? Is that a thing? or is it the armholes on these patterns? probably a combo but I find on a lot of the Vogue patterns if I raise the armhole it is much better, and if too high it is easy to take away. 
Here is the pattern envelope photo and technical drawing. Now looking at it again perhaps it is veering close to a ruffle. I am not super into ruffles. Although a nice flounce – that I do like, as evidenced by this Pauline Alice pattern sewn earlier this summer. But a ruffle skirt just seems a bit prairie girl dress. On the envelope it looks better. I think the example is a chiffon or very lightweight fabric. Although the skirt is not lined – so the double layer of the fabric has to do some work to make it, shall we say, ladylike?

I have no complaints about these clever pockets, though. They are hidden in the ruffles and droop a bit on the dress form but as worn are smooth and don’t stick out. Oh, another thing – this dress is not hemmed and I think on anyone taller it would be quite short (another typical Vogue designer thing). I figured the flounces didn’t need hemming either, as this is a jersey knit and they are round so all bias edges but actually kind of disappeared on the skirt without any hem. The small stitched hem was enough to make them show up so that is something to keep in mind.

and a look at the bodice. Featuring my blue leather belt which lives in the sewing room. Kind of amazing how many of my creations that it matches, which might say something about my restricted color palette. Or that blue goes with anything πŸ™‚ This fabric is a navy blue background with little pink, grey and magenta abstract spots. The bodice is lined with knit fabric. There is info on knit linings in my recent post.

V1448 dress on form side

See, kind of odd from the side. Also I thought it was a bit strange that the ruffle things didn’t match at the side seams. And I know I didn’t sew it wrong so that was the design.

Here’s one with the belt instead of the self-fabric tie. I actually like the belt, maybe it makes it a bit less girly? which is not the intent. Ack – I dunno.  Anyway this is going into the closet with the other summer stuff and we will give it a try next spring.

This is my favorite picture of the day. I rolled my sewing worktable across the room so I could stand against the blank wall and take a mirror shot. Forgetting that everything behind the mirror is also in the camera’s view. So real life sewing room, or portion thereof. including my Singer Rocketeer which everyone seems to notice in pictures. iPad on the table because who can sew without constantly checking up on the sewing blogosphere. Sneakers discarded, a muslin of Sewaholic Alma blouse hanging on the door which I am sewing for someone else. My very ugly floor lamp which I usually hide if anyone comes over but it takes a 3-way bulb so nice and bright. TV remotes on the desk because if not listening to podcasts then catching up on TV. The teal blue trays on the desk which are super handy for keeping all my tools in and then I can move them around the room. And most importantly my glasses because you know, sewing.

So that’s the latest. I think I had better make a hard right turn into Fall Sewing. One of these days around here it will be frosty in the morning and thus turtleneck + boots weather. Not that I want it. Just tolerate. However if we have a nice rainy winter I will be thrilled.

Happy weekend sewing – and be careful as there are a lot of desperate folks (read non-sewers) on the hunt for Halloween costume fabrics this month.

For my garden photo today – speaking of desperate – it is so dry, even the trees are starting to look a bit exhausted. I am worried about the lemons and hope we get a good drenching soon.
So how about a succulent – although I’m not exactly sure what this is. The plant in the background is definitely a succulent though.
