My sewing table is already full… and then twitter happens…. Again
I just finish a #sewingdare and now I’m back with two more adventures instigated by Twitter.
I’m doing a coat, you all know that.. I have commit to it as part of my sew resolution but it’s scary to do it by yourself… Was nice to know that others felt just the same..
And a few of us then decided to set up a support group #sewcoatbuddy.
Yeahh, we got a private flick group I set it up so if you are making a coat and want to have a buddy or be our buddy, you must send your email privately to get invited.
We will write our doubts and show/tell our muslin and progress… It’s a virtual support hug group.
I had previously selected Colette’s Lady Grey but I feel I been staling it because I’m not sure how to alter it.
Being so tall, some designs and styles are harder to lengthen correctly and drop darts appropriately.
So now I am thinking to try a different shape like colette Anise.
My Lady Grey and Gertie coat tissue patterns are both cut … I got to make a decision fast so I can start on my muslin.
Another is the Pokadot Frock Fest..
Oh I love the pattern but I don’t have it, and I love the idea of sew a poka dot as I love my red poka dot dress..
I only have cotton pokadots in my stash I’m not keen on sewing cotton during winter. Now, I’m not sure if I’m making another trip to the shops to buy something suitable or just skip this challenge. I really need to use my stash and stop growing my sewing stock.
Twitter is very fun but get you in serious problem…
Now, hurrying back to the sewing room before I get in trouble again… Or maybe I should get others in trouble launching a challenge in March… watch this space!
