How are you feeling? Did you get any sleep last night? ……………………..Ha, funny!. I love your PJs by the way & your split jumps are really impressive! I think I’d have fallen off the bed. ………………………………..Yeah, I know. Meryl is kind of cool isn’t she. I wish I could pull off dungarees like that, but I just channel Bananarama ……………..
Well, you know, *stuff*……….. Of course we did! ………………..Well it’s kind of glam I suppose. Sherry went a bit crazy on the blusher………..Yeah, Chardonnay, as usual, you know what she’s like!
No, there isn’t any glitter – oh, except I’ve found some glittery blue nail varnish.
……………..Oh no! Far too cold ! Tights and boots but I just got in the mood. Gotta go …. they’re calling for me. Bridget Jones is just about to start…..wish you were here with us! See you soon xx
So what do you want to know? (Apart from what we talked about ALL night?)
I did find the old duvet cover, it is from Ikea & any dreams this piece of reclaimed fabric had of being paraded as a beautiful dress have declined. What started for the bed, has gone full circle back to bed.
If you remember I used the Sweet Nothings bloomer pattern, really easy to sew, with one piece per leg- not side seams, just inner seams – very quick to sew. I used the rolled hem on my overlocker to finish the flounce edges (something that is always incredibly satisfying!). And for the top I found a camisole pattern & managed yet again to introduce rick rack! Yeah! zigga zigga ah! The top was designed to be lined, but for bed I thought that it would be too hot to have lots of layers, so I used bias binding rather than make facings up. And the buttons? They are also reclaimed from the duvet cover. What a great cheap make 🙂 And how nice not to be wearing an old half marathon t-shirt with PJ trousers.
Great sewalong Karen! Thank you for hosting it. And for once I have hit the timescales!!!
And I’m still reading “Born to Run” by Chris McDougall – it’s not a big book, but I’m just not getting much reading done. It’s great – all about ultra running, but not in a scary way, written in a very engaging & at times quite exciting way!!
Can’t wait to catch up with the rest of you – later though. The sewing machine is shouting for me.
