I'm hopeless

You should think that my stash and wardrobe plans should be enough to keep me busy as far as sewing goes, but I bought more fabric. In a shop where I was near for a work appointment I found two beautiful knits, a black fabric in a fine quality for pants and something to match my fabric for the Marfy coat.

With EmmaOneSock I was tempted for a very colourful paisley. Could not help myself and ordered it.

And two weeks ago I ordered 4 sewing books (thanks to Carolyn's post on books I started looking for Decorative dressmaking and found it, plus three other books I liked) .
Today I bought two patterns. A Jalie shirt (love the fit of Jalie tops) and this Vogue pattern:

I do like the jacket so much, especially the back. Had my eyes on this one since I first saw this on someone elsed blog, and just could not resist the temptation....


  1. Ohmygosh I have inspired quite a few people to purchase some sewing books! So what else did you get besides the Decorative Dressmaking book?

  2. I also bought High Fashion Sewing Secrets From the World's Best Designers from Claire Shaeffer, and Sewing Secrets From the Fashion Industry from Susan Huxley (all used books, which makes it affordable to buy a book on which I'm not too sure) The fourth was Marcy Tilton's book
    Easy Guide to Sewing Tops and T-Shirts, but this was cancelled. Will write a post when I'll have them.


It's always nice to have feedback on what I'm posting about. All comments, also positive criticism, are always highly appreciated.
Leuk als je een berichtje schrijft, altijd leuk om te lezen, ook opbouwende kritiek!
