I may be crazy but I have been doing some sewing this weekend….in my very own little sweat shop! It is so hot, I know it is heaps hotter elsewhere but I am more of a winter girl.
Hubby took this photo while I was pretending to strike poses – sorry for the no chin look LOL
This top is Simplicity 1884 view B, without the tie. I used a satiny material, which is not very good in this heat but should be nice when it cools down a bit.
I am hoping it will look nice with a black skirt but I really think it would look great with aqua capri pants, not that I own any!
Next I am cutting out this dress, I am making the long version with short sleeves and using a lightweight cotton fabric from Spotlight.
I also have a couple of finishes to share but I will spread them out over the next week or so!
I hope everyone is surviving the heat and the fires, my thoughts are with all my bloggy friends who are being affected.
Here are my tips for surviving the heat – keep a damp face washer in the fridge and rub it all over your face every now and then. And eat your Paddle Pops fast!
