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!
