Sewing for pleasure again - A Starry Lady Skater19:15
|It was on the hanger squint, the hem isn't really squint :)|
I made something! It has been a long time since I made something for me, what with Mum, business and diabetes, my sewing time has been limited. The last thing I made, last October, sits in my basket of doom waiting for fitting issues to be resolved... It is one of those things that has lots of emotions tied up in it because of when I was making it (please say other folk find this and I am not as crazy as I feel) so I am not sure it will ever be finished.
Last week I found myself with a free evening (gasp!) so I raked out this fantastic Girl Charlee jersey fabric that I won in a giveaway that Helen at Just Sew Therapeutic ran last year and, after some deliberation about patterns, set to work on my 6th Lady Skater.
The only think I did differently this time was that I cut the bodice in the size bigger than I normally would so there was little need for it to stretch over my bust, it is printed jersey so goes white when stretched too much.

Now if spring would just appear so I could actually wear something that doesn't contain or need layered with, wool that would be great...
