Over the course of a week I managed to sew a little something for myself. I spotted this amazing fabric while on a shopping trip with my mum recently, do you like it? It's super soft, light weight viscose, it's hard to tell from the photo (I still haven't taught my kids to be willing photographers) but the top is this pattern from the Pattern Postie, view b.
While the pattern itself is easy to sew, it took a few days to cut out and sew, using pockets of child-free time. I do vaguely remember I time when I had the chance to sew a project from start to finish in one go, vaguely. I'm mostly happy with it, so I'm hoping to make a few more for the warmer months ahead. I must admit to seldom being happy with a "sewing for me" project, always things I wished I'd changed once finished, I'm fussy like that.
Do you sew for yourself?
