White Rabbits, White Rabbits, White Rabbits
Right then, now that's out of the way, lets get on to today's MMM pic. Be warned this is a picture of magnificent derpitude. The reasons for this are varied and complex but luckily I can summarise into one pertinent point.
I was too lazy to set the tripod up.
am wearing a crappy cardigan from Dorothy Perkins (I have the yarn to
make myself a nice basic black cardigan but really, basic + black + 4ply
yarn = boring knitting)
Me made stripey 'boatneck', this is a pattern from a 2009 issue of burda, this was the 1st version I made, I have since modified the pattern significantly!
Me made Crescent Skirt, everyone knows this Sewaholic
pattern I'm sure, I had my doubts about it when I was making it, but I
am pleased with the way it turned out. I tried to take some photo's of
the outside of the skirt, but all you could see was black, so here is a
picture of the secret skulls on the inside
On the whole I like this outfit combination, it makes me feel like I should be in a Tim Burton film.
week was quite eventful for me. On Thursday I went for a visit to the
local college, come September, all being well, I will be going there to
study for a Foundation Degree in Fashion & Clothing Design. I had an
excellent time and stayed all day and I got to draft a skirt block and
create a toile. I also learnt of a fabric shop of epic awesome-ness.
Walton's Fabrics in Rotherham,
if you are every in Yorkshire I highly recommend a visit. Amazing
fabrics and the staff are lovely as well. I took the trip down on
Saturday and had a stash enhancing spree -
from left to right, needlecord, wool crepe, cotton and something mix, linen & another cotton and something mix.
synthetic microfibre, cotton baby hounds tooth & another synthetic
and the awesome infamous lobster print cotton. LeBeau says that this fabric is ridiculous and should only be used for aprons, PAH! I say, this is going to be a lobsterrific dress.
Knits, stripey cotton jersey, french print interlock & leopard
print cotton jersey (with matching solid jersey for trims)
Ok, and if that wasn't enough spending, I also went a little loopy on eBay,
The fabric on the top is another cotton jersey and the bottom fabric is a quite finely woven linen.
And this beast is a Singer Slant-o-matic
431g. I got her threaded up and working today, and she produced a
perfect stitch on the 1st go. I can't wait to get her properly cleaned
up and see what she can do.
Until next time internets!
