What have I been up to??

Hi everyone

Sorry for the silence lately! I have been doing bits of sewing, but I have yet to complete anything!

My Sew Over It Vintage Shirt Dress still needs buttons and buttonholes. I really need to get that finished because it’s suitable weather for it at the moment!

I’ve also started the Poppy Playsuit, also by Sew Over It. It was a free gift with last months Simply Sewing magazine. I’m making it in this beautiful peachskin fabric from Fabric Godmother.

I’ve sewn it all together, just need to make the turn ups on the legs and sleeves, then sew on the hook and eye. It’s perfect for summer! I’m really excited about getting this finished!

Not the best photo but it’s coming along!

I’ve also ordered the fabric for my Ultimate Trousers, so will start them when I’ve finished the playsuit. I seem to be on a Sew Over It binge at the moment! There’s a few other patterns of theirs that I’ve been eyeing up as well!

Also, how excited are you that GBSB is back?? I love having Patrick back on my screen! He makes Monday’s a whole lot better! So far, only the first episode has been aired, and already I think the challenges are harder than previous years! I’ve already bought the book for this series and think the first thing I’m going to attempt is the Palazzo pants. At the moment I’m thinking crepe, possibly navy. If I was brave enough, I’d go for a bright pink or purple pair! I also think a nude or blush colour pair would be lovely for a wedding or christening outfit.

What are you making? Are you loving GBSB?
