When you don’t only crochet or knit, but also sew clothes and make quilts/patchwork, there is never a moment to get bored. But I do notice that it all comes in waves; there is a period with mostly knitting, followed by a lot of patchwork, etc. This time there seems to be a lot of sewing to be done.
Last week I finished my second blouse.
Again the same pattern, but this time made with a very soft but warm cotton babyrib.
Because there were some wishes in my family for clothes to be made, I went to a fabric market last week.
On top a denim for a pair of trousers for my husband, second a beautiful woolen fabric, also for a pair of trousers for him, but then a more fancier pattern.
In the middle the biggest challenge; a couple of meters black woolen fabric for our youngest son. He wants a tuxedo! The dresscode for the parties at school is changing, so he needs one by now. It has been years since I last made my husband a complete suit, so it will take some time to do this again.
The yellow fabric is a waxed denim which I’m not yet sure of what to make with, and on the bottom a very colourful fabric for a new wintercoat for me.
Haven’t yet decided on model or pattern, and I guess I’m going to use some black fabric too.
First up is the tuxedo. The pattern has been bought; there was very little choice. Only 2 possibilities. Obviously not so much is sewn for men.
