Sadly age is catching up with Pin Queen and this week I've had to buy glasses, plus I'm thinking of wincyette pjs - now that's a sure sign of ageing! Well, to be truthful Ian's going to be away a lot and as the nights are drawing in I though they may be a nice "comforter" (honest!). I was thinking to use this New Look pattern for the top - the one in the middle with the contrasting bands.
I though I might make them in white (just a simple elasticated, drawstring, waisted trouser) with a pretty cotton print for the contrasts. Now, just need to source the wincyette?
I also need to finish my Chanel Jacket. It's a beautiful Linton Tweed loosely woven cotton in pale lemon. It was supposed to be made up for Spring/Summer but never quite got finished - because I didn't purchase enough "Glamour" lining. It was 115cm wide and not 150cm as the last lot purchased had been. It's a pattern I've had for years and I love making Chanel jackets - quilting and all that hand sewing. No wonder I'm having to wear specs these days!
Do you think I'll get all of this done in between dog walking, cleaning, cooking, washing, ironing etc, etc?!
