Sewing Adventures

Dove Fitted TeeIt’s been a while since I made any clothes with my sewing machine, it usually just gets used for repairs or quick cushions… But recently I’ve been thinking it’s time to sew some clothing, after all I can’t only wear knitwear! So I was finally spurred into action by the stylin’ designs from the new pattern company Sinbad & Sailor. The Dove Fitted Tee really took my fancy as I never seem to have many interesting tops.

After a false start with some overly heavyweight fabric I got some pretty Indian wood block print fabric from Our Patterned Hand and I was away. Printing and cutting the pattern was really simple and the instructions were the clearest I’ve ever encountered. I’m really pleased with the final result and I’m so pleased Spring is finally here so I can wear it everywhere! I might have to make another in a different fabric too…

Next, I have plans for projects from DIY Couture and The Colette Sewing Handbook, two books which I’ve had a little while but not used yet. I also can’t wait for more Sinbad and Sailor patterns!
