About me

My photo
I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon

The last of my summer sewing

Here is a simple top, lengthened to a beach cover up to wear maybe with this pair of Jalie PJ pants a.k.a. my favourite pull-on pants pattern. To wear after swimming on sunny days, or for schlepping around in the summer evenings when I don't want something to stick to my skin.

Both out of crinkle cotton I bought when for some reason I thought I was going to make some curtains. Let me tell you that my home dec intended fabric can sit in my stash for a very long time untouched, at least until I can figure out how to make a garment out of it. All the rest of my summer projects are getting packed away where hopefully they will be a nice surprise for me next spring.
