Oof. One of those days where the moment you step out of the front door your hair goes to hell. Damn you, humidity!
I’ve finally worked this dress out of my system. I think. This is my fifth Charlie Caftan, but I wanted you to see the gorgeous Chaffinch Bough lawn cotton bought from Fabric Godmother at The Handmade Fair. The fabric is beautiful, isn’t it?
It also has acute puncture memory from pins and needles (ie the puncture holes don’t disappear when pins are removed). Don’t leave pins in overnight and if you need to do any unpicking, crack on straight away.
Now, I’m ready to move on!
My favourite stand at The Great British Sewing Bee Live was The Maker’s Atelier, and I came away with these patterns. My next project shall be The Pleat Detail Dress in some beautiful linen I recently bought at Goldhawk Road. It’s a deep burgundy that almost looks black.
The Maker’s Atelier also has a book, which I’ve been meaning to review for months. Maybe, now is the time!
Have you sewn any patterns from The Maker’s Atelier? What’s next on your sewing table?
