Thank you for all your supportive words re FL. There is nothing to be done until Friday's appointment except try to jolly him along. Dexy day today : (
One of the most Frequently Asked Questions at the Crafters' Ceilidh was "What are you sewing now? Or what's next?"
I wasn't very good at answering on the day. I am "between jobs"!
But having purchased two entirely unplanned lengths of fabric, I am now overflowing with inspiration!
I plan to use the downloadable Scalloped Shorts pattern from Pattern Runway at Etsy.
I haven't seen too many (any?) of these around the UK blogs, perhaps because the designer is Australia-based? But in these days of internetty connections, there is no reason why we shouldn't sew designs from the other side of the world!
I like their simple sharp shape. I might omit the back pockets to avoid velvet traumas with those bindings...
sew-along and the pattern can be downloaded free from the Sew Daily - woo hoo!
I was inspired by The Material Girl's version here.
I don't have the instructions (having lost the magazine) but I reckon I can work out what to do.
NOT printing the pattern out double-sided would be a good start!
