Christine for a day of chatting, fabric, lunch and shopping. We were also going to meet up with Connie, who sadly couldn't make it at the last minute. Next time! And in fact Christine has sent me a list of amazing places to go to in the extended area so now I can't wait to go to Strasboug again next year and meet up with Christine and Connie! In Strasbourg centre ville there isn't really many places to fabric shop, but there is La Droguerie, where I bought two pieces, This make uses a liberty-esqe lawn called Pollock Flamboyant Ambiance. an abstract splatter paint design. I bought matching binding (genius!).
Marthe, but there has been a lot of talk on instagram on the Japanese Sewalong so I thought I would have a look at my Japanese pattern books.
Frocktails, Lizzy bought Clean and Simple and I immediately fell in love with the jumpsuit in it. I didn't have time to go to the book shop in Sydney and pick up a copy but immediately rang the bookstore on arriving back in Canberra and bought it over the phone. I am still super keen to sew up the jumpsuit, especially after meeting Christine, who is absolutely the jumpsuit queen, (making 11 in the last 18 months!), but I was looking for something simple and quick, so after much deliberation settled on the peplum blouse on the cover. My love for the peplum is well documented and I have been itching to sew a higher necked top for ages,
