New apron No14…

Working on a new apron. It started as a doodle, on the morning of my open studio day when it was a bit quiet.

Since then I’ve drafted a pattern, made a toile (calico mock-up) and made lots of making notes and changes.

I bought some dark navy, crisp cotton twill in Rolls & Rems Lewisham last week, which I need to do a wash test on (to calculate shrinkage and colour loss) before I make a sample apron….

Nighty Nightie make…

A couple of hours, one morning this week, spent making myself a nightie with lovely lightweight paisley fabric from Merchant & Mills. The pattern is Simplicity 1561, but I didn’t elasticate the sleeves….One thing I would say though, is that threading the elastic through the channel was very tricky!
