Ok, Ok, Ok so I know I haven’t yet shared my make for August but I swear it’s finished! I was up until 11.52pm (that’s super late for me on a school night!) finishing it off and boy am I glad I did! It actually came together really well and I’ll aim to take some pictures whilst wearing it to tonight’s shindig.
So ignoring my lack of consistency, let me tell you what I will be making in September to add to my sewn wardrobe. I’v been waiting for Autumn to hit since about July 21st so I am more than ready to start rocking some cosier clothing. If you don’t already know, my alter-ego spends 37.5 hours a week in a pretty professional business environment and I think it’s about high time I sewed myself a proper pair of work trousers. On my first visit to Mandors at the beginning of August I bought some lush semi-heavyweight trouser material (can’t for the life of me remember exactly what it is) in black. I do have some nice trousers which I wear to work but both pairs are grey so I think black will be a nice addition.
I’ve been trying to find a suitable pattern for the longest time and I simply can’t find a single pair of trousers that I want to make! After almost giving up I decided to go ahead, bite the bullet and self-draft my perfect pair of trousers! I can hear you all gasping in delight/horror at my bravado.
I’ve not exactly been shy in my quest to sew a wardrobe, hacking patterns left, right and centre so I’m definitely up for this challenge! I will be using on the the aforementioned trousers as a rough guide to avoid going completely off the deep end 🙂 I don’t really have any pictures to show you in the post so I’ll leave you with the gif that runs almost constantly in my head whilst I’m sewing, Enjoy.
