|I'm making the one on the left|
A couple of weeks in and I've cut all the pattern pieces out and have started seaming, but I have to admit that I've got a tad confused with the instructions and have gone off piste so to speak. But, so far (fingers crossed) its looking okay and it seems to fit her, so all I have to do now is fit the sleeves, pockets and hem.
By the way - did any of you see the first episode last week of BBC2's fab new programme the Great British Sewing Bee? I loved it and can't wait to watch the next episode tomorrow; my favourite to win is Mark - I love it that he doesn't fit into the 'conventional' idea of what someone would expect a sewer to be. Go Mark!
On a final note, I've written an article in this month's Vintage Life Magazine about what to look for when buying your first classic car (mine was a 1972 VW Beetle a long time ago). I've tried to condense about twenty odd years of classic motoring experience into a few paragraphs and hope that the article does help anyone who'd love to buy a classic, but aren't too sure where to start.
