Hi everyone! First of all, thanks so much for all your suggestions and offers regarding Simplicity 2451! I may revisit them at some point, as I'm still rather intrigued by the pattern, but for now, I think I've made a fair approximation out of the Meringue pattern from the Colette Handbook. It's even almost finished (well, the hopefully wearable muslin is, more about that at a later point), but still requires some hand sewing - after I've taken it in a couple of centimeters. Yay!
I thought I might show you a couple of outfit posts from last week(end), when I met my parents about halfway between our homes (read, in the middle of Germany) for a bit of a spontaneous wine-tasting vacation.
I thought I could also share some stuff with you that I've ♥ on bloglovin in the last weeks...
Like Zoe's Refashion Fridays, and especially her tutorial on adding a cute collar to a t-shirt. Or a lace front. Pretty!
correct the fit on raglan sleeves.
More sleeve alterations: How to alter a pattern for forward sloping shoulders.
And last but not least Colette teaching how to sew a fly front - something that I have yet to try!
My first day in Surgery Internship was fine, btw. No 24h shifts for German interns! Gosh I'm glad about that, and with my way to work shortened by about 40 mins and beginning 45 mins earlier, there really is a whole lot of afternoon left after work! Wahoo! (We'll see how I do on my first "real" day tomorrow... ;-)
Have a lovely week, everyone!
