Introducing my gorgeous daughter to the world of sewing

Side imageBaby doll top number two.

My daughter helped me with the fitting on the first top I made last week and expressed an interest in having one herself.  Buying clothes for a teenager is something I would no longer contemplate, having seen many items of clothing disappear into the bedroom never to be seen again. So it was a joyful and extremely proud moment to be asked to make her something, if it will be seen again is anotheFull front imager matter…..

Something for the day job

I decided to make something  I could wear for work.  The pattern Lisette 2059 came with a magazine, I found the material in a local shop for £3.  The garment in the pattern had long sleeves but I chose to put shorter sleeves on this one as the warmer weather is upon us. The front is plain with a coupBlouse Frontle of darts, the back is in four pieces with gathers running horizontally across the centre.Back View  The cut is bigger than I would normally wear and I took it in 1″ smaller than the pattern size too.

Just a little bit crazy

Gathered topI started this top last Monday, it was so easy to make, the front top section is gathered horizontally and the bottom section is gathered vertically. At this point in time I decided to make it sleeveless, I might unpick the bias tape on the armhole and put the sleeves in at a later date.Centre Detail
