In my last post about my Molly Top, I told you about my chaotic sewing planning. And how projects that I wanted to start right after buying the pattern tend to take ages… My Toaster #2 sweater from SewHouse7 is another great example for my inability to plan my sewing projects! I fell in love with the pattern straight from the start, when SewHouse7 released it. I love that neckline!!! (more…)
I was all set for spring: the tulips and bellflowers were blooming, I had taken the first ride on my standup paddle board, and on my cutting table I had laid out a beautiful flowery viscose and a shirt dress pattern.
