In the past month I've been a busy bee! I went up a mountain (Le Grand Ballon d'Alsace) went home to England for a while and then attended a wedding back here in France!

|I can hold it!|
My mum made a lovely little flower arrangement for my room when I arrived home:
In terms of sewing and making things, I have made the Kasia skirt from Burdastyle:
Sorbetto Top in my previous post.
I am also in the middle of making my first pair of trousers! I have been told that trousers are one of the most difficult projects (fit-wise) but I like a challenge! I am using a chocolate brown twill from Abakhan Fabrics (see below for all my lovely fabric purchases) and this great (and FREE) tutorial and pattern from Plan B by Anna Evers:
Love the pattern!
Pictures of my trousers to come soon...
I have also been working on a white version of the Sorbettto without the pleat... same story on the pictures!
I made a pair of (*blush*) knickers too (just need to add the elastic) from So Zo's pattern and tutorial (she is really great). Mine aren't half as pretty as hers but they are comfy!
|These are hers...|
|And these are mine. I have found a little blue bow to add to them :)|
I took in the sides of a cardi (which I bought second hand but hadn't worn because it was a bit too big) to make it fit me:
|Stitch up the sides to make it fit...|
|It fits me a lot better now :)|
|Actually this one I bought off ebay; it's a knit with tiny yellow flower print|
|Cotton (making a bag out of this)|
|with this (also cotton) as a funky lining|
|really soft knit (this is now a dress, pics soon!)|
|This is cotton too and I looove the print. some of the little buds are silver!|
|And a better look of this print. I think only a dress or something large would show it off sufficiently...|
Thanks for reading!
