A couple of months ago Linda Lee of The Sewing Workshop spoke to my chapter of the American Sewing Guild. Linda inspired me to make my limoncello Kalle top, and I also wound up purchasing a couple of patterns, one of which is the MixIt Top.
In April I bought two pieces of fabric from Fabric Mart Fabrics and I actually had a plan in advance – make a skirt and top for Spring.
My blood has thinned after 15 years in the southern U.S. and I now wear sweaters when it’s 12C. Which means I now sew proper sweaters, not just cardigans to stop the chill of the a/c.
What I need is a basic black handbag … but how boring would it be to sew a black handbag? I made something less utilitarian, but more fun.
There are plenty of raves for this pattern in the blogosphere. Now I understand why!
