So did you know that this jersey top from my Country Roads collection is pretty acheivable using the Banksia pattern? Though it was made with my favourite tshirt pattern (originally drafted when i was a teenager – and still a favourite!), plus a similar collar – it would be so easy to create with a few small alterations to the Banksia pattern.
I think I might show you how to do it in the sewalong – it’s one of my weekend staples – something about the feel of a tshirt with the look of a nice blouse really clinches it for me. Don’t you just love it when style and comfort decide to be best friends in a garment? I do, it’s kind of the best :)
Meanwhile, i had a lovely weekend, how about you?! It was so ridiculously busy that i think i might pass out – but totally worth it! On saturday I got a nice blow dry, went shopping with a giant gift voucher to my favourite store (do you like my new sunnies?!) and was lucky enough to catch up for brunch with a dear friend from high school. There’s something lovely about sitting down with an old friend and finding that though so much time has passed… it really hasn’t at all. You know? And Sunday was just as good – we hung out with our parents and then in the arvo I popped by a meeting of the Perth sewing club – which was totally fun! It was really great to meet other ladies who love to sew. Sometimes it feels like the only people i know who love to sew are on the internet – so it was amazing to be standing in a room with people who share this passion and speak the same language. Even better – everyone was so nice!!
What did you guys get up to?!
