Shorts, skirts and Simplicity

Jaws eat your heart out

Marianna's choice of fabric for her son's holiday shorts was so fabulous, I had to show you guys. RK has a feeling the other boys won't mess with him when they see these sharp-toothed fishes jumping out at them! smile

A drizzly Saturday saw a good turnout at the group; sewists, knitters and (new addition) patchwork quilters all joined in.

Simplicity 2588 + Amy Butler fabric

Marilyn decided that five New Look skirts were enough for her Jamaica holiday and started on Simplicity 2588. The Amy Butler fabric, bought from HobbyCraft, is a heavy cotton summer print and perfect for this prom style dress. At £13.99 a metre, not the cheapest fabric but worth every penny for the quality. If you are going to make a complex dress and have it as a wardrobe staple, sometimes you have to blow the budget. Stay tuned for the finished creation.
