A scatty sewers journey through the world of sewing

New year, new pattern designer obsession

I know its the last day of January and its a bit late, But Happy new year everyone!

Why so late? Ive been so busy with my day job of being a childminder and my teacher training has stepped up a notch as well so I have had other distractions to occupy my little brain, but that hasn’t stopped me from researching new pattern designers and on line haberdasheries.

My latest love is Tina Givens designs ( Tina givens patterns ) I love the way they are so loose and comfortable, they are really boho chic and I love that style. I have managed to sew up one top last weekend in just 2 1/2 hours, its the Honey pattern you can find it here Honey pattern

This is my version made with cotton lawn…

It is so floaty and fits like a dream, I wore it teaching on Thursday and everyone remarked on how lovely it was.

Yesterday I went fabric shopping to Lee’s in Swansea ( Lees fabrics ) and picked up a few meters of cotton jersey to make a few more of her designs. Today I hope to make the Juliana top with my new fabric.

Ive also downloaded The Megan romper pattern from Made for mermaids ( made for mermaids ) it seems very versatile with options for shorts, long sleeved and short, trousers, short skirt and long, it just looks amazing for the summer. The only down to the pattern is you have to print 80 pages! 80! but I suppose once printed you only have to print a few different ones to adapt the patterns. 

The good thing about the pattern is that there are lots of fabric options so it can be made for the summer months and a knit to wear in the winter months and as its on offer for only $7 at the moment it’s a bit of a bargain. 

So I’m off sewing, I will check in with you more often now things have settled down a bit more.

Happy Scatty Sewing
