Soooo, my poor little sewing machine (which, unusually for me, doesn't actually have a name - any suggestions?) has gone it for it's annual service, which is causing me great distress - what I am supposed to do in moments of boredom while I have no sewing machine? Housework? I think not baby puppy!
This means that I don't have a project to share with you this week . . . . boooo! hisssssss!
BUT I do have some news for you . . .
I have been asked to blog for and review the patterns of Eliza M Vintage, and their sister company Simple Sew . . . how exciting is this?!?!?!?!?!?!
As you all know, I love the vintage style, so obvs I love the designs from Eliza M. I'm just trying to pick my first pattern. which is a very difficult task, but I should have that with you soon. Do I go for my usual dress pattern, or try something a little different, like trousers or one of the blouses/tops? Oh, decisions decisions . . .
Anyway, I already love Simple Sew patterns. They have been given away free with Love Sewing in recent months, so I do have a small collection, and I particularly love love love the Ruby Dress, incarnations of which can be found here and here. I also have a couple of patterns in the stash just waiting for the right fabric to come along, but I am hopeful they will soon - I have ideas for these at least.
Both of these brands are patterns I am thinking of stocking in Haberdasherholic once I get that off the ground (I've had a fair few setbacks, but I'm trying to bounce back from them), so it is nice to at least be able to try these out first before I make a final decision.
Anyway, hopefully, normal service should resume next week (fingers crossed) and I should have a project or two for you.
