Has anyone seen the movie "My Life in Ruins" starring Nia Vardalos?
My Life in Ruins
Well this week of my life could have been called My Life in Boxes. I have moved back to my old apartment and I am still trying to get my life out of all the boxes and sorted and streamlined and decluttered. Organized even. You know I think I could be a minimalist if I weren't so fond of material...books...patterns. Oh ok and plants and elephants.
The last thing I sewed at my DD's was this little top.
I used the bodice of V8765, a dress pattern for wovens, as my base. I traced two sizes bigger, left off the front slit and the dart and added 12cm in length. Narrowed the sides of the neckline a little bit. I do plan to make this dress eventually, the straight skirt version.
Off to unpack my sewing things and maybe go for a swim. I am within walking distance of the local pool/fitness centre and it's hot today. Unpacking boxes can wait.
I'll be sewing soon. In the meantime I'll leave you with some English Halloween memories.
Happy sewing, Valerie.
