Highland fling


My sewing machine has been sitting vacant for a while now and life has just been quite busy and blogging has been far from my mind so again i am sorry for neglecting you BLOG!!

Winter has arrived and along with it a desire to sew........and shop!!!
I love new seasons to browse the array of catalogues that come streaming through my letter box and drool over the latest Boden or Joules designs and then I go in search of (The look) for less!!

I spotted this dress from Joules but by the time I had pondered over purchasing it it had sold out in my size


This is when the sewing machine came out and the hunt for fabric began!! My other half suggested I just sew a couple of tea towels together to get the same effect but then what does he know of fashion!!! Although I did actually give it some thought as they had some rather wonderful tea towels on line!!! ( I jest)

We have a little sewing shop in our town and it stocks some rather old-fashioned fabrics so I did not hold out a great deal of hope that I would find the right thing,but then I guess its rather a dated fabric with a trendy twist so I was lucky to find a wool blend in a traditional tartan design at a mere £4.00 per meter....result!!!

I was in too much of a rush to buy a pattern so i just cut out the material from a dress i already had that was a lose fit and my finished result was this

 I put the zipper on the outside to give it that Joules feel
 I think this will look great with a shirt,maybe a denim

french seams to finish it off!!!

Right I am off for project number 2!!!
