sewing roll at the moment. I’m a person who gets inspired by little girls clothes. Which is great because my soon to be three year old has outgrown almost all of her summer clothes and needs them replacing. I hate the quality of clothing in Algeria. And if its imported it costs an arm and a leg! So when they are only going to get one, or maybe two, summers wear out of it, its a big expense! I am really enjoying creating. I had some fabric left over from a lot that was sent to me by my good friend, when she was still in the UK (she blogs here).
Unfortunately fabric isn’t up to much in Algeria either! Its poor quality and more expensive then it was back in London. For A country with hot summers I cannot understand why there is so little cotton. Having said that, I guess its a question of economics. These are the things I have made for my little princess thus far!
And so far I have only made this one item for my daughter who has just turned 10. She is unfortunately, much more fussy and wont want to be wearing my creations for much longer longer I feel!
And finally I am currently working on this dress for myself. Which is a much harder task for me. I haven’t got to grips with sewing for myself I always get the proportions wrong and for some reason, I am much less careful with something for myself. I managed to cut the skirt crooked, so it may turn into a long shirt…..
Most of the things I have made were inspired, or in some cases just copied from here and I found the odd thing I like here. I have recently started following plenty of other sewing blogs too. Insha’allah I will update my blogroll another time. Plus my latest sewing love is growing, inspired by some blogs doing feartures on Japanese sewing books. I love the simple, basic shapes, they make a real style statement! Again I will leave that for another day maybe after I have tried making something! Have a great day where ever you are!
