Well, I finally got round to sewing something…….only because the pressure was on to go to the blogger meet up! I made up NewLook 6145 to wear . I bought the fabric 18 months ago and never had time to sew it into something.

 Ali from Thimberlina had organised another meet up for the Yorkshire Spoolettes. It is really great to meet everyone in person and the funny thing is everyone is always just how you expect them to be after reading their blogs! It was lovely to meet you all! 

Here is the Ali and Amanda selfie we sent to Neela as she couldn’t make it this time.

We all met in the cafe for an hour and had a good sewing chat with everyone before we headed to the fabric shops.

Oops I missed  the photo of Therésa from Navy Blue Threads and Jean…. Who doesn’t have a blog but was showing us her beautiful hand made bags. 

The blouse I made is supposed to be a dress…. And I cut it too short! 

It’s also big enough to slip over the head , so didn’t actually need the invisible zip which took me ages to put in with some type of matching! 


 Can you believe I managed to buy some matching shoes!!?? But it was far too wet and miserable to wear them!
Pattern: New Look 6145

Fabric: 1.5 m of cotton , two buttons and an unnecessary zip!

Wonky factor…..7/10 it’s a really unusual neck which passed the work colleagues likability test BUT not if you wear it under a coat! It gets rather crumpled!
