Worn: Sandflowers layered with Acqua di Sale, Roma, Terracotta, Fils de Dieu, Granville (still reminds me of a rheumatism ointment, but classier), Lovely Sheer, Bracken Woman, Florabotanica
On my plate: coleslaw, broccoli soup, bun with veggie burger, pumpkin soup with curry, lentils and coconut milk, salmon with noodles, asparagus and tuna sauce, fresh baked seeded rolls (the boyfriend badly burned his thumb and has a big blister)
Made: I am sewing some underpants for the boyfriend and have cut out another shirt for him.
Watched:I started watching the series Bones. I have read Reichs books, but this is just loosely related to them. Anyway it’s fun to watch
Done: our whole practice had to be tested for Covid after having contact, so we had to line up at the test center outside on the sidewalk, all wearing masks, looked funny….
Although I started sewing early at 16 and made much of my own clothes until I finished university I am now not a very accomplished seamstress. I managed to make some successful garments, that look reasonably good, but I have a lot to learn.
I like dresses, because I don’t have to think about matching tops with skirts or pants, just have to find some matching panty hose without holes and I am good to go.
As I looked at the patterns from Wardrobe by Me, I was attracted by the Mirri Dress, because I like draped tops, and this one seemed not too revealing, which is a often a problem if you have a larger bust.
I bought two jersey coupons at the Stoffmarkt in Heilbronn to test the pattern before buying a more expensive fabric. And I am really pleased with the results
The drapey faux wrap really sits nice and is cut high enough. I cut out European size 44 and graded to 46 to accommodate my bigger waist, because I am more a busty apple than a pearshape
The pattern consists of 5 main pieces plus 2 strips for the sleeves. After you made the pleats of the front piece, the rest comes together quickly. Only the shawl collar is a tiny bit fiddly. I did not alter anything on the pattern and can recommend this for a bit adventurous beginning sewists. I am sure I will make another one soon.
On my plate : greens and boiled potatoes, Wraps with fillings, homemade pizza, vegetarian Chili, Lasagne, Bavarian sausage salad, savoy with minced meat and pasta, broccoli-lentil salad with raisins, mint and baharat, asparagus with vinaigrette
Watched: The Valhalla Murders, a very good mini crime series, located in rejkiavik
Reading: Still reading a SF novel called Rosewater
