Not just sewing.... Thought it would be fun to do something else than sewing for a change, so I looked in my drawers if I had anything I could play with - and was lucky to find material for a necklace:
I bought the material several years ago at the museum shop at the Louvre Museum in Paris - think it was actually meant for kids to play with but I think it's pretty OK like this!
Finally some free time After a couple of busy weeks - at last I had some time to get going with my sewing projects again. The first thing to do was to finish off two projects that had been lying around for the last weeks, starting with a sleeveless tunic for the summer, made be a red really heave linen fabric.
The pattern originally had small sleeves, but it was not really comfortable so I decided to remove them and finish off with these nice bands instead.
After the tunic was ready it was time to move on to a pair of trousers - made of a lightweight corduroy in a blue/green color (the pictures does not really show the color correctly). I used the pattern I had recently used for my Barcelona trousers and it worked very well also for this fabric.
Now what I need to do is to go pattern-hunting, would really like to find a nice tunic-pattern for the summer...
