Brit Sewing Thursday Linky

Brit Sewing Thursday Linky

In retrospect it probably wasn’t a brilliant idea to start a Brit Sewing Linky on the day that most Brit Sewers headed off to the Fat Quarter Retreat, but thank you to those of you that gamely supported the first week, lets see how many sewers and quilters we can find this week…

This is what I’ve been up to…


This week I have had two finishes, both pairs of shorts for the boy made using the Parsley Pants pattern. One long (fabric from the stash) and one shorter (fabric not from the stash, oops!) With the continuing warm weather the expansion of Theo’s summer wardrobe has been most welcome and taken the pressure of the household laundry a bit!

Wee Play shorts

Car shorts

I can’t wait to start making some trousers for the winter with this pattern, not least of all because it’s going to save me constantly hoiking up his shop bought trousers which are always too big on the waist.

In progress…

I’ve also started making a skirt for me using this tutorial, but I’m in the process of unpicking it at the moment, as due to an obsession with wearing skirts on the hip, I went too far and made it way too big. I reckon I need to cut off about 4 inches from both front and back panels, but it will be worth it on the end.

Unusually for me there are no quilts in progress at the moment, I think it’s the warm weather, the thought of getting wadding out at the moment does not inspire me…

So what have you been up to?
