Another Me-Made May update! Are you getting bored of these yet? I admit that, while I truly enjoy seeing other people's outfits, I'm very overwhelmed by the immense amount of pictures in the flickr group...
|Day 16: me-made halter top, leggins and (unseen) knickers.|
|Day 17: my very first me-made skirt and recently made yoked flower top, plus me-made knickers. The luxerious breakfast was because it was the anniversary of bf&my first kiss. :)|
In Sewing News, I'm still in the cutting out stage for several projects (two blouses and a Lola!). But I had a rather panicked thought a couple of days ago: I have nothing to wear for Orals! Ok, this is possibly a lie, since I have an (ill fitting) white blouse and a couple pairs of dressy trousers, but no blazer. There's also going to be a few job interviews in my very near future. What to do?!?
|Day 18: me-made dotty jersey dress. Me-made knickers. And yes, I'm posing with an umbrella, even though it isn't raining. It was raining earlier, I promise!|
|Day 19: me-made striped jersey dress and me-made knickers. Also: me-made bird earrings.|
|Well, I only added the bird charms to the hooks. But it still counts, right?|
|Day 20: me-made black&white jersey dress and me-made leggins. Me-planted seedlings. The plentiful green stuff behind the watering can is lettuce! It grows crazy fast!|
After about 45 minutes in the drier with a couple of wet towels, on a high setting:
Have you ever sewn with wool? How have you pre-shrunk it? Is there anything else I have to know about sewing with wool?
