Going Green…

April 15, 2013

I’ve been sick for over a week now. I’m not normally a sick person and so I’m very very much over the incessant coughing and general stuffy-ness of this particular sickness. But I have to admit, it’s been great for my sewing!

I made another Afternoon Blouse in a vibrant apple green cotton voile and finally finished a black circle skirt I had cut out in February.

I’ve also finished a striped black and white number I started back in January (number 1 on my sewing list – photos to come soon) and started a 40’s blouse made out of a mint green polka dot cotton. It’s really rather lovely and I can’t wait to show you!

More photos on my blog.

Does being sick help your sewing along at all? Or is it just me?


  1. I love that top! Its gorgeous! Now I need to make one.. I also need to take in my circle skirt, though that might make it a bit less circle-y.
