Hello, all! I hope your holidays were lovely and warm and that you have had a great first week of 2015. We took a bit of a hiatus to regroup and relax with our families for the holidays and now we are looking forward to an exciting new year.
I mentioned in my winter wardrobe post that I had a double-knit Market Day Tunic and a tweed Weekend Rambler on the brain, so I wanted to share some pictures from a quick photoshoot we did in the library just before the holidays to get you in the mood for some winter-y sewing. We finally got 4″ of snow yesterday and I’m anxious to get back to my sewing machine for some selfish warm gear sewing.
I made this Weekend Rambler following the instructions exactly, and the only thing I wish I would have done differently is to line the pockets with a lighter fabric since the seams got pretty bulky with all that wool. Next up for me is a pair of Sewaholic Thurlow trousers in chunky brown corduroy. (… and maybe purple twill. And goldenrod pinwale corduroy. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, shall we?)
We have a slew of photos to share of the Summer Jazz wintered up with our free sleeve pattern that we will be sharing soon, and I will write a tutorial next week for lengthening the Market Day into a dress (it’s easy, I promise!).
What is on your cutting table these days?
