I am making progress. Slow and painful but definitely progress on my Salme playsuit. I have finally put the pockets into the shorts. It took me 2 hours. Yes 2 hours. How hard can pockets be I know you are thinking, well, this pattern makes hard work out of them. I really want to love Salme patterns, but as I said when I made the Pussy Bow Dress the instructions could be done much better and it is definitely true of the playsuit where there are some weird pocket pieces. I have two halves done now, so all I have to do is sew them together and finish it (this could take a while given the timing of what I've done so far).
I saw the forecast for the weather yesterday which said it is going to be 27 and sunny on Sunday (for Elliot's 4th birthday party - a Robot party!?), so I was all keen to finish the playsuit and wear it. Now it looks like it will be 22 and cloudy with possible showers, so no need for me to panic.
The other thing that makes me think I might need to rethink my (children's) party hostess outfit is that I am making the romper out of Liberty of London D'Anjo and when I tried the two pieces on (with pins sticking in every which way)- trying to work out what they would look like and if it was even going to fit.. I looked decidedly like I could be in pyjamas. Not convinced by this outfit.
.. maybe I just need the right shoes and accessories. Stay posted.
