I have reclaimed my sewing room after having my sister visit from the UK for Chinese New Year. It was great to spend a decent amount of time with her and although I miss her now she is gone it is nice to be able to sew again.
The next few projects were all finished before she arrived, but I'm still working on the photography for some of them. We had unseasonably gorgeous weather here in Hong Kong for Chinese New Year and I should have used that opportunity to take photographs, but I was tied up with other things and of course now it is dark and rainy.
This one is a pretty boring make, and is in fact a complete repeat of this skirt here, even down to the store where I bought the fabric. One yard, HK$20 and about an hour of sewing and I have a new skirt. Nothing new to add on the construction I just wanted to show that even projects that are so easy they seem like cheating are worth doing.
I know purple is not everyone's cup of tea but I am going through a bit of a purple phase right now, spurred on by my new not-balenciaga bag. It will pass eventually!
Lastly to those who asked, the pattern for the navy doubleknit dress from my last post was from the monthly Burda Style magazine, the August 2009 issue. You could try searching ebay and similar sites for it. Burda make lots of their patterns available online here, but they don't seem to go back as far as this one unfortunately.
