It’s a New Year

Hope you all had a lovely, if what quiet, Christmas and New year. Now is the time to look forward and plan for brighter, warmer days when we can get together with family and friends, so lets us plan for those get togethers.

I have treated myself to a new planner and this is going to be the first dress that I will enter into it, I have had this striped linen (LN0012) Viscose in the shop for a while and I feel it would be perfect for this McCalls pattern (M7950) version C. During the November lockdown I was lucky enough to attend a zoom meeting with the Rowan team, even though I can not divulge their Spring collection just yet, I will say there are several items that would be a perfect partner to this dress.

I have spent many days in jumper and jeans, like many other people I guess, so I want to make some pretty tops for the Spring in Viscose and linens, the ones I have inserted below arrived just before Christmas and i thought McCalls pattern 7976 would be an ideal choice.

Finally as I can’t quite give up the relaxed at home look, but I wanted something with a little more sparkle, I just could not resist these two rayon knits

Top of the list is a pattern from Cosy Little World, monceau cardy or maybe a simple Linden top by Grainline studio.

Wishing you all a very Happy 2021, stay safe and sew
