Time for my monthly e-mail and share with you some exciting projects for April. I’m not off a great start though, my iron “just died in my arms tonight…It must have been something I said”…or rather paid as I’m sure its untimely death may well have something to do with my unfortunate habit of buying cheap stuff on eBay. Well, what can I say? It had it coming! I had it coming! And I don’t even think my iron deserved that Cutting Crew homage anyway.
But the Sew must go on and once I sort out this minor problem, I’m hoping to start and complete 2 projects this month:
–Plaids Shirt: Never worked with plaids on a shirt before and I haven’t made a shirt for a long time neither. I think I will combine these two fabrics together. I might end up looking like a lumberjack and I’m not sure it’s a good thing. Mind you, I’ve been known to have a few fantasies about this look in the past…
–Houndstooth/Olive T-shirt: Call it a case of Coco dress jealousy? I call it a case of maximising fabric yard usage. Anyhow, both are probably true and I have enough houndstooth left to make a special T-shirt which I want to combine with that medium weight olive jersey. I’m still debating on the design but I’m sure I’ll get up one day and finally get on with it.
In other news:
–Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition: Yes! It’s finally opening in London on April 9th. I can’t wait to go and report on the clothes, the fashion and the cutting-edge designs. I’ve always wanted to meet the man himself! Sadly he doesn’t read my blog.
-Finally I have a brand new story in store for you – Farewell to the 1920’s murder mystery saga and hello to the 1960’s. Nadia and I have collaborated for the first time with an exciting photographer (glad to be off the hook on that one!). I’m still in the process of writing the story but you’ll get a taste of things to come this Friday 🙂
