Farbenmix patterns

As I have done it in the past, I would like to give you the opportunity again to order Farbenmix patterns that you might be interested in but that I don't stock. I will be placing an order after the 19.11., so if there's anything you would like, just let me know and I will order it for you.

While I went to a craft fair on Saturday, the men were busy at work. The concrete is down, dry and tomorrow they are going to start on the timber frame.

It doesn't happen very often, but when the last OTTOBRE women came through my letterbox, I fell in love with the pinafor dress Bubble Pocket. It is pretty easy to sew and I'm sure I'll use that pattern again. It only needs a few little changes, the top is a little loose so I think I'll use a size smaller next time and the facing ends right on my bust, so that needs lengthened. This one is made in lime babycord.
