Proof of Sewing- Scout No. 2.

P1220372It’s bloody December already!  Is it just me or is it tough getting anything achieved at this time of year?  I feel like I’m doing loads, just nothing that I really want to be doing and nothing to show for it.

I have managed some sewing though. I needed something to kick me out of the ‘Bah Humbug’ mood that I’ve been in for the last few weeks, so I dug into my stash and pulled out this red and green plaid, the leftovers from my Cat Scaring Plaid Danielle.  That dress was one of my first ever makes and I still bloody love it even though it has some pretty obvious faults, I didn’t finish any of the seams and the zip no longer works. In fact I am planning on remaking it before Christmas if I get time.

Anyway, I had just enough for another Scout Tee, this time taking into account the fact that I have put on a couple of inches on my hips.  This is what I love about being able to sew – Clothes no longer fit your shape? Just make some new ones that do.

Nothing to add about the construction really. It was a quick make and I think the red and green is starting to work its festive magic. I may even consider putting the tree up this weekend.

    We had our primary school Christmas fair last weekend and after 2 days of putting up and taking down decorations, I am definitely in the bah humbug camp at the mo. Nice top by the way – the seasonal red and green will work its magic I’m sure!

      Thanks, although you wouldn’t be saying that if you could see me now – I’m wearing it at the moment and it is covered in pizza! I shouldn’t even attempt to type while eating but I’m starving.

    The plaid is really fantastic. What a great pattern. I know the feeling… I have put on about a stone in the last year and 1/2. Grrrrr…. But, yes, I just sew new clothes that fit perfectly. Problem solved. Nicely done on your shirt.

    O I hate it when I’m not able to do all the things I want to do… Lucky it’s not just me though.
    NIce shirt. And Tartan! You’re so on trend! 🙂

      Glad I’m not the only one. And I’m afraid it’s not so much being on trend as waiting for the fabrics in my stash to come back into fashion. Actually I should hurry up and sew the rest of my plaid while it’s still on trend.
