FNWF - February

Managed to get my weeks and Fridays all in a line for a change.  What I have been working on during February  (not much for myself) have spent more time on making Love Quilts for the craft group to use for charity.

Using this sleep wear  pattern, I have made a tunic for the cooler autumn weather, stitched the side seams to just below waist level to give a more casual look. The length is halfway between the short top and nightie.

January 2018

I haven't  done much  work through the summer heat, just a few little projects to fill in time.

An elastic waisted skirt, side splits , almost ankle length. Made in a linen blend fabric from my stash  had this for many years, from the days when I  made and wore form fitting pencil skirts for work.

 A cool sleeveless summer top made from the offcuts from the dress I made in December. To add extra length I added the hems as extra pieces, the front cut creatively to use all the fabric.
