I have been pondering what to do next, as my Jenny-Project has come to a close. And here are my thoughts.
I have been sewing a bit this autumn, mostly because in my work I write a lot and my main hobby is also writing and I simply need to relax doing something totally different. Combining fashion and a bit of budget-planning lead to taking up sewing after many, many years. I really am a beginner again. So I looked on the internet and found a number of interesting and inspiring ladies who sew vintageinspired or even real vintagepatterns. Being a large-framed girl I really like this, as “real” vintage clothes so often are in small sizes, and hunting for reproduction clothes not always get you what you want!
Among those bloggers I started to read was Gertie and her http://www.blogforbettersewing.com/ and ofcourse the accompanying book, which I just got. Apart from being a useful handbook for a beginner, it also has a variety of patterns to try. And my new Project will simply be to sew myself through the book!
So the pencilskirt and the portrait blouse seem easy enough, and will be my new Projects.
More than that? Well, don´t expect me to give up my Trashy Diva-fix just yet! I know there is a floral Little number coming into the stores soon that just has my name on it!!!
