It was Pinafore day today - and the three ladies had lovely and very productive day. Please excuse the funny angle of the photos, I can assure you all dresses were symmetrical :-)

Debbie made a lovely, summery pinafore in cute cotton print

 Sally promised her 3yr old daughter to bring a dress home - and she did a perfect job

And Barbara added an extra frill to her autumnal pinafore in fine baby cord.

Trousers workshop

From cutting out the fabrics, inserting a zip to finishing the hems: the ladies who came to my workshop on Monday thoroughly enjoyed making two lovely pairs of girly trousers:

Summer dress

Today is the first really nice day here in Dundee, blue sky, a light wind and about 14C. Oh, we're all longing for a bit of sunshine and warmth after this winter that seems to have gone on forever.
And as we're needing quite a lot of summer clothes for our holiday this year I have started making some dresses and tops for Leoni:

Sewing workshop

The two ladies who came to me this morning had never sewn with jersey before. After experimenting with some remnant fabrics  - and a nice cup of tea :) - they both went home with a lovely loop scarf!

That's the name of the Farbenmix pattern I have new in stock: it is a basic trouser pattern that can be made for boys or girls. I'm using it one for the sewing workshops and thought it might be a good idea to try it our before letting my students have a go. This is the boys version, made from red denim with adjustable waist, a proper fly and zip. Girls version will follow.
