My Lotus tunic is still in progress. The darts are done and the zip is in so that’s the back of the tunic finished. I intended to sew the front during the Olympics Closing Ceremony but found myself watching rather than sewing. I did join one of the side fronts but I don’t think I’ve sewn the curve very well so it’s now waiting for the seam ripper.
I met up with the lovely Magpie Mimi today for a spot of fabric shopping, tea drinking and cake eating. We succeeded on all fronts.
In John Lewis I gave in and bought 2 metres of this chiffon which was reduced to half price at £6 a metre.
The roll was 145cm wide so I have lot of fabric towards a future project. I’ve been meaning to buy some chiffon for ages as so many of my fave store bought dresses are made from it. I am a little intimidated by the prospect of sewing it – I see a lot of french seams in my future – but hopefully it won’t be too bad.
Magpie Mimi gave me this beautiful cross stitch cherry button that she’d made.
she knows me well
I’d been meaning to buy one of her bird rings for ages
I’m also having a pair of bird earrings made to match Her etsy shop is here if you’d like to check out her fab stuff. There are better photos on her site. I was in a rush tonight so mine are’t great!
