I woke this morning to an email from Claire of Sew Incidentally. Had I seen the new button up shirt released by Grainline Studios? No, I hadn’t, but now I have. And can I just say, this is the perfect blouse for my Sewlution!
As I mentioned in a previous post, I don’t really ‘do’ classic blouses, so I was looking for something a little different, that would fit into my wardrobe whilst still giving me the technical challenges I’d craved.
I’d considered the Craftsy course on the Classic Tailored Shirt, but it felt like a bit of a cheat to have my hand held during a Sewlution. Now that Grainline’s blouse has entered my consciousness, I know exactly what I’ll be doing. Thank you!
Maybe I can shop for fabric (flannel? silk twill?) on the 20 April outing being organised by House of Pinheiro… Oh yes, all my cards are falling into place!
I have one other project to get out of the way first. I’m going to make a second Minoru for Spring. I am keeping the faith that one day the air will turn warmer, buds will burst, my lawn will stop looking like a mud pit and my thermals can be tucked away for the foreseeable.
Could it be so? Am I mad to dream?
I’m really glad to see two firm projects lined up in my sewing future. A friend recently asked what challenges I’d set myself in 2013. A coat? A vintage dress? No, nothing, I’d told her. But even as the words left my mouth, they felt dry and crumbly. Karen, without a challenge? That just ain’t right!
How are you getting on with your Sewlutions, guys?
