What I’ve been up to

Well, apart from passing my last-ever university exam (yay!), there’s the small matter of completing my thesis. Regarding sewing, I finally found the time to alter some clothing. Just a few alterations – mending holes, taking in at the sides, shortening the strap length on one of my favourite tunics etc.

I am also working on finishing my next project for the pattern challenge. As soon as I resolve the last issues I have with the garment, I will present it to you! Let’s just say I’m not yet completely happy with it…

Additionally, I submitted my Cabo Halter top to the Spring Top Week that’s taking place over at Made by Rae.

Check out the flickr pool of all the entries!

Wishing you all a very happy Easter weekend =)

Treasure Hunt

Oh, don’t you just love discovering hidden gems in thrift stores? I did so on a recent trip to one of those shops (well, actually I even returned for a second round of treasure hunting…).

I bought a variety of things, from zippers in all lengths and colours, to trims and a sewing book and, of course, a lot of fabric.

Cotton, Linen, Jersey, you name it! And of course in lots of different colours…

So let’s just hope I’ll soon have the time to make good use of all my new goodies! =)
