I started trying to take some better images for the blog to show what I’ve made. It can be quite tricky to get great images when you’re not an excellent photographer, but I’ll give it a go from now on.
Series 2 of the Great British Sewing Bee came at a time when I was just venturing into learning to sew. I hadn’t been watching it and while everyone was watching Episode 4 on TV, I was catching up on the previous episodes in between finding free patterns and reading extensive tutorials and vintage sewing books. I eventually bought the book from the series and hate to admit, but I don’t think I’ve finished any of the garments that were in it.
When my nieces bought me flowers and showered me with hugs and kisses, telling me that they missed me, I suddenly had the urge to make clothes on a much smaller scale. I’ve never made anything for children before, so thought I’d give it a go.
Well… there’s no more Great British Sewing Bee. It was over so quickly! At least we have the book to keep us going. I really wanted to make something simple during the week and made the Sleeveless Shell Top from the book.
