An itch to stitch!
Bonjour, Bel’ bonjou’!
I was minding my own business one evening, chilling for once, and suddenly I felt it.
Just like that I had….
…An itch to stitch!
I had to make something but didn’t want to tackle any of the big projects I have in the pipeline. It was just a case of sudden envy to satisfy. It had to be quick and practical, as long as I cut, stitch and could hear my machine purr. A quickie if you like
A 2 hours top, a 3 hours skirt to go to work the next day? With a pattern? Without? Would 45mins of an obi belt satisfy me!? With what fabric? and thread?? and trim??? Argh!
I found a hand dyed style fabric remnant.
Bought in Paris, it lives as a summer dress for Paola in Italy
I did cut this!
The pattern is my own
The pins looks like daggers in hearts but fear not, it was pinned with love
1 hour, 2 lemon and ginger teas later and …
I did end up with this!
Makes a pretty wall decor for my sewing station, in my favorite colours
I went to bed happy!
What did you make to sooth an itch to stitch?
