Sewing

Posted by on February 27, 2012

Something terrible has happened! I am no longer (well for a few months) able to card… and the result is that I don’t really feel like spinning anymore either!

So I’ve had to come up with something else to do, and have returned to sewing which I lost interest in when I discovered spinning, a few years back.

I started with some really simple projects, not too “structured” (=wide and shapeless), and realised that I have forgotten quite a lot technically speaking… but it’s slowly coming back.

Couture !

The Pixies hard at work!

Then, I wanted to make a tunic from this book:

Tuniques, robes, etc ... de Yoshiko Tsukiori

I wanted to make something wide, which would open down the front… it turns out to be wide enough to invite a few friends in to keeo me company!

Nevermind… I chose a beautiful Kaffe Fasset (Rowan) fabric and handmade buttons from La Bricolerie, and some cotton in fig from Eurodif.

It’s not quite finished yet, and if anyone has some tips and tricks on how to sew a neat bias edging, they would be very welcome ! Especially as the next projects I have in mind have bias edging all around!
