Ready to go.

I’ve copied Simplicity 8753 and shall make a sample to ensure that it’s right, there have been a few alterations – I am doing view B, not too loose and not too tight.

I have to make the same shirt for someone else but in a 38″. I usually use a 1cm seam but have left the 1.5cm or 5/8″, it’s easier than altering it, I’ve been sewing a 1cm seam for so long, so I shall have to concentrate.

I visited the big fabric shop in the city and bought a shirt length of denim. I want to make a Levi jacket as well but this denim is quite lightweight and not heavy enough for a jacket, so that means another trip to the shop – it was a rushed trip last time but maybe more time next visit.

A visit to the Opshops (charity shops) was fruitful this week with a hoard of wooden cotton reels and two enormous cones of thread, I used a normal cone to show how large they are, I won’t use them up in my lifetime but I shall use the dayglo orange soon, perhaps on the denim.

More pattern transfers to card this week and then back to sewing, it’s been at least a week without one stitch – tragic.

That’s my lot for today,
Take care,
Will.
