Summer Jumpsuit made by Cris


When your best friend decides to come out of sewing retirement just to make your sewing pattern there aren’t words to really describe the feeling. Such a lovely gesture and even better as I got to see how happy she feels her work and coming back to sewing. Sewing is such a precious gift. A circle of happiness.

I was on hand when she needed me. The only thing she forgot to do was to add the front bodice pleats but otherwise she done such a lovely job. I’m so proud. Just shows that even when you have a long sewing break you can still come back and rock it. She bought this lovely viscose from a local store called Just fabrics. It reminds me of liberty flowers and Portuguese titles mashed together. Since the weather is really warm she made the size 36 shortening the trousers into shorts. As she is very petite I recommended  that she shorten the length of the sleeves but she liked as it was. To be honest me too as it balances really well with the shorts.
