Two projects

Here is Mabel modelling an armistice blouse I started in the spring! It is lightweight embroidered cotton and will be nice for next summer.

A little jumper I made from a length of thrift fabric. Initially, it was a jumper with a lot of fabric on the sides, very lagenlook style.... do not use cotton for that, too bulky...made my already ample hips huge. So I just scaled it down and made it a little longer and it is my halloween/autumn jumper now.

Love the print on your jumper!
I havent been able to get to my sewing machine lately..just unmotiviated. I have a skirt I cut out 2 years ago....I'll do small remake projects but cant seem to start the larger projects! Maybe this will motivate me!

I love that blouse set you are making, Paula. So pretty and feminine. Then of course, you cut a fine figure in the clothes you are modeling too. Sheesh. I wish I had style. Flair. Something.

Fun jumper. I used to wear a lot of them when I was younger. You look great in it.
