One week ago I returned home after spending one week in our cabin. I was all by myself (almost) with my dog Turid. I spent my days sewing and going for long walks. This photo is a bit misleading. I didn’t bring a camera this time, but I wanted to share a picture with you. In reality there is lots of snow there now. Maybe a bit too much. I am ready for spring.
In this photo you can see what weather we REALLY have
Still the good part was, I did a lot of sewing. The project I spent most time on was Cynthia Rowley’s sewingpattern, “simplicity 2443. I have had this pattern for some time. In a way it looked boring, but I decided to give it a try.
I was surprised to discover all the nice details in the pattern as I worked. The more I progressed, the more I liked it.
I made the jacket from a denim-like cotton and the dress with ITY jersey.
The jacket took some time because of the pocket and other details.
The dress itself has a simple shape, but the yoke, waistband and hidden zipper add detail. I love the result more than I had anticipated. I lengthened the skirt of the dress by about 20cm /almost 8 inches.
My oldest daughter was delighted with it.
