I do not really know HOW COULD I LIVE WITHOUT THIS BEAUTY!!! I' am planning to do one undred of these. Great job from By Hand London. The fabric it is a nice and drapey poli mix satin with a kinda "sakura" print.
and trying new tips like covering the end of the invisible zipper.

I had this beatiful, but reduced piece of Egon Von Fustenberg fabric. I fished it up from a "silk" claimed basket in a Giesse store.
I am in love with these white ortensia flowers.
Hubby is an asian artist. I thought it would be a lovely idea to knock off one of his casual shirts and sew it up with a wonderful fabric I bought in Japan.
I used the pin on paper tech to obtain the pattern and then I added the seam allowances.
more details of the finished piece.

I am in a hurry, trying to whip up as many winter clothes I can before the spring explodes.
What I am really managing to do it is to try sewing patterns unused until now; I study and fit and true them. In this way they will be ready for the next cold season.
This Wembley cardigan is made out of some scraps of a jaquard fabric and a ponte knit. Actually the sleeves are too thight so in the next version they will be fixed.

Ahhh my new Camas....
I had this pattern in my collection since the Stone Age, but I didn't dare to try it.....I don't know why, maybe the plaket seemed a pain in the neck.
Finally I dove in these unknown waters and I am so glad I did it.
In the first place it's a wonderful basic in my closet, them it's an amazing scrapbuster and last but not least, it took me out of my confort zone.
