The problems I encountered with my last two jersey dresses have made me avoid my sewing room like the plague. I keep finding other things to occupy me (not hard). But The Great British Sewing Bee is back, and what better way to reignite a sewing passion! Watching them made me jealous – I want to sew again. And I’m easing my way back in. No pattern drafting, no invisible zips to drive me crazy, let’s just make a top. If they made it in 2.5 hours – I hopefully can fit it into a weekend, somewhere.
I’m starting with Colette’s *free* Sorbetto pattern. There are loads of great makes out there for inspiration. I haven’t decided on a fabric yet – challenge 1 is printing out the pattern! How typical for my printer to pack in today. Is the universe trying to tell me something…?
In my search for the Sewing Bee 2014 patterns, I came across this site on the Simplicity New Look website which is pairing up the makes on the show with their patterns. I’m already loving the first three…. could this be a new challenge?
