The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

I'm still around, not yet dropped off the sewing radar, but I have been busy with my knitting. That episode is over now and being assessed by my knitting teacher (she seems happy with it so it was worth taking a break for!). But I'm a bit behind now. This is how I've interpreted 'do over'. It's one of the first things I did for Sew Weekly - from an 80's pattern. I've never liked it because it looked a bit too 'homemade' for me and was a bit big and blowsy looking (80's patterns were always on the large and boxy side). So, I've done a bit of twin stitching down the seams to make them look a bit more finished off and added some red heart shaped buttons to the front opening, as well as to some cuffs I've made. The original sleeves were just rolled up, but I've made some proper ones.

I've cut out the next challenge 'home' and I've still got my Burda Christmas dress ongoing and I know what I'm doing for 'purple' ... down with the knitting needles and out with the sewing machine!
