Yes I really am THAT excited. I have been sewing like a maniac for the past two years. Mostly for my daughter and for markets. I have been meaning to make something for myself for ages. I even had a go at it a few months ago, which unfortunately was a disaster.
I am not into New Year resolutions, however this year I have decided to start sewing for myself.
Have you heard of the Shades of Me sewing series created by Hayley of Welcome to the Mouse House and Celina of Petit a petit and family? The idea behind the series is to encourage women to sew more for themselves. I have been inspired by all the colourful gorgeousness, and I could not resist to join in!
Sorbetto Top by Colette patterns looked like it could be a successful first 'sewing for myself' project. I bought this yellow printed cotton poplin at Spotlight a few months ago. How funky is this print? And how well does it look as a Sorbetto top? Yeah!
I have confessed my undying love for buttons on numerous occasions. I sew buttons onto everything I make for Little Monkey, as she is just as addicted to buttons as I am. Now she will have to share cool buttons with me! Sharing is caring sweetie ;)
Little Monkey said she loved her mummy's new dress. Best compliment ever!
