a spot o’ sewing

  1. Half finished projects are so great – all the satisfaction with only half the work. So many times I’ve been able to quickly fill my craft stall by finding a box of half finished projects and getting them done. These all look great!


  2. I think these are wonderful, Helen. Three good additions to the Summer wardrobe, too.
    I get what you mean about sewing for yourself though, I feel the same way. The image in my head never quite seems to be what I am wearing (or, more likely, biffing) at the end. Guess we’re lucky we can fill most of our clothing needs at the op shops : )


  3. beautiful! i love the dinah hawken skirt especially and i always think of that line too when i see a tui.
    doesn’t it feel so great to have new clothes for summer? especially custom-made ‘you’ clothes.
    i know what you mean about dressmaking though. i do enjoy it, and even quite like the result but then get tired of the pieces really quickly and notice design/making flaws yet can’t seem to throw them out. it seems to be complicated, when it shouldn’t be.
