Been doing a bit of knitting for a change. Forgot how slow it is compared to sewing but so happy now it's finished.

I made a coat!! It's the #newlook6325 pattern but as I love a challenge I added a full lining and am so glad I did. I also added snap fasteners so I can wear it two different ways. The fabric is a boucle wool mix from @abakhanfabrics and was surprisingly easy to work with. I think it'll be really warm too. It's making me slightly look forward to winter!

New dress made out of just one metre of fabric from @minervacrafts. I used a basic top pattern for the bodice then added button bands, skirt and drawstring at the waistline.

My second #greatbigpatternswap make - #simplicity8292 in Liberty lawn. Thank you @thatssewlisa for the pattern and @the.polka.dot.palace and @thezipperfoot for hosting the challenge.

Thanks @pinball_widow it's here! My final pattern for the #greatbigpatternswap. I'm excited about this. Looks like there are some interesting details.

Chiffon... 😬 Never again!
But at least the colour matches my nails.
