YES I AM A FLAMINGO LADY.
In addition, I have been mulling the possibility of making a wrap top with my dear Christine Jonson wrap dress pattern, and finally made it happen. I don’t know what I was waiting for – it took all of an hour and I totally love it. All I did was hack the pattern off just below the waist, and then add a 1 inch hem band. I didn’t bother making a hole for the ties to go through, and it seems to work fine just wrapping around my waist. I used an gorgeous merino wool sent all the way from New Zealand by the lovely pink-haired Sophie-Lee.
So, passing on the blog hop next.. it’s hard to choose! As I’ve mostly seen fairly well-known bloggers participate so far, I thought I’d throw it to a newbie: Rosie from SparkleNeedles.
Rosie has only just started sewing and blogging but 1) she is hilarious. Like, really, really funny 2) she is already getting so good! 3) I love her style (it is, in her words “a 5 year old at a rave”) 4) it’s fun to revisit the beginner days and 5) did I mention she’s hilarious? Anyway, you should totally check out her site, and even though I know she’s only just started blogging I would love to hear her answers to the blog hop. Over to you, Rosie!
