So, my stash diet hasn't been going great, with limited actual sewing of garments my stash isn't going down!
This is just a short catch up of what I have bought recently.
On my recent holiday in Thailand I wanted to REALLY do some fabric shopping but unfortunately my holiday spends were pretty limited (story of my life at the moment!) and I would rather spend my money on doing things - but on my last day I saw this. Now, I think you can get this cotton in the UK really easily but its elephants in Thailand so it had to be bought. I bought 2 metres of it and I am sure it was about £2 a metre. Totally worth it!
A couple of Saturdays ago I went on a meet up with some lovely sewing ladies through The Foldline. If you aren't acquainted with this site I would highly recommend. A social network for sewing! WIN!
So, there was a thread for a London meet up on Goldhawk Road and I went along.
The lovely Barbara over at The London Dessmakers Club has posted a more detailed plot of the day.
I was VERY sensible - I didn't want to be but I was!
A gorgeous denim, it is really wide so only bought a metre for £6.99.
I am sure I was told this was black wool crepe. I could be wrong but it is bottom weight and I bought 1m for £8.
For both these patterns I am thinking Seamwork Osaka and it will become my wearable skirt as Challenge 2 of My 2016 Sewing Challenges.
It has been non-existant on the sewing front I am afraid, I am hoping I manage to get some done this weekend. I need some relaxing time, life just gets in the way!
Hopefully will have something to share soon!
