First up I have to admit that I have in my possession Sewing Clothes Kids Love. I've had it for a week now.
The only reason that I haven't posted about it is because I haven't had time to sit down and gush in writing. The book is a visual feast. The patterns are fabulous and Nancy's advice is super. Really if you want to know how I sew, buy the book.
Mollie's pick is the Brooklyn Shrug. I had to giggle. I think she choose that because she doesn't have anything like it, plus she likes the look of it. Or perhaps she thinks the dress is part of the package?
I'd really like to make the Manhattan Special Occasion Dress. Every so often I like to make something that has a bit more detail and is just 'special'. Unfortunately I think I'll have to wait a few months until I can tackle it. (yes, because of this darn renovation - next post has some exciting piccies though!)
And my skirt and top are on page 13. I've been married 13 years. We just celebrated our anniversary this week.
Thank you so much to Nancy for including my skirt and top in her beautiful book. I am so honoured to be part of something so wonderful.
The book is excellent value with 10 great patterns. If you've been reading my blog for a while. you know I am fan of Imke. I've also enjoyed making Insa, Dortje and Feliz in the past. I'm really looking forward to making the Brooklyn pieces, the Silver Lake Windbreaker and Manhattan Dress. If are you are a lover of Farbenmix, you will want to have this book. If you've been thinking about trying out a Farbenmix pattern then you should seriously consider buying this book.
