Month: March 2016

A perfect spot – Raglan Tunic Dress

Post 77

Hello sewosphere, guess who is back? Back from holidays, that is, and with a horrendous case of the blues… Lisbon was lovely, with blue skies and sangria in the sun, and coming back into the middle of Storm Katie did nothing to ease me back into everyday life…

In any case, on the sewing front, I can report some great bargain fabric purchases in Lisbon, and slowly, very slowly getting my sewjo back. I have sewn nothing in March, which is actually a bit worrying for me. In part, it was due to a lot of travelling for work and our holidays in Portugal, but I also acquired two UFOs, which is very unusual for me. I really need a quick and dirty project to get me out of the slump…

But in the meantime, I do have something to show you, a dress I absolutely love and have already worn a dozen times, but somehow didn’t get a chance to photograph yet. It was like a curse, every time I wanted to do it, something came up: bad weather, hangovers and just not being home in the daylight. I even took it with me to Portugal, but it rained on the day I had planned for pics. GRRR! So I just took some boring pics in my living room today, taking advantage of a break in the clouds and rain for some reasonable daylight.

So here goes, my perfect spotted raglan tunic dress…

Things I’ve learnt in February

Things I've learned

Hello sewosphere! Another month of 2016 has elapsed, albeit a shorter one this time. On the plus side, it’s maybe taking us a bit closer to spring, on the downside, I’m not feeling very optimistic with all the negative temperatures we’ve been experiencing since the beginning of March.

Hope you will forgive me for being a bit late with the monthly ‘learnings’ post for February, because of loads on travelling for sewing, family occasions and work. I’m actually writing this from Copenhagen, where I’m visiting my family to celebrate my mum’s birthday (a bit more on that below).

So, without further ado, here are the things I’ve learned in February…
