I have been so very uninspired to do some sewing lately, but I got a bit of a prod from someone the other day......which made me get off my bot-bot and finish a long awaited project - actually two projects!
I made this self covered belt to go with my Easter Dress that I sewed over a month ago (I know, I know, way too long between drinks!)
I hadn't made a belt like this before but am now thinking I'd like a few more - they really finish an outfit off nicely. I probably could have put in a couple more eyelets, but I thought 'Hey, I'll quit while I'm ahead before I muck it up!'
Rather pleased with myself!!
Then there's the matching jacket. I think it took me so long to finish because half way through it I wasn't sure that I actually liked the darn thing and it just sat there staring at me from my sewing table for about 4 weeks, but having finished it and worn it to work,
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!
And don't you just adore the nifty back view of the collar?
I was a bit puzzled how to put it all together at first, but it kinda fell together quite nicely in the end.
And it won't be so long for the next post.....promise!!!!
