Hello, friends. My weaving friend, Martha, of Thistle Rose Weaving, invited me to share photographs of one of my recent sewing projects. So, I am being very brave and am posting a photo of the camisole and French knickers that I made this week! Here they are!
I used two Colette Sewing Patterns to make this set: "Cinnamon" & "Nutmeg." "Cinnamon" also has a slip dress version of the camisole (which I think would be very fun to try), and "Nutmeg" includes directions for tap pants and two very exciting bralettes. The fabric for the cami is cut on the bias. If I have cut fabrics on the bias before, it has been so long that I don't really remember doing it. Making the straps for the cami is a breeze with a loop turning tool -- it is a nifty gadget to have. The fabric is a fine cotton lawn from Japan. It is a summery/warm weather set, so I don't think I'll be wearing this any time very soon!
The waffleweave towels are coming along nicely. Here's a photo of the sage green/beachy green towels in the works!
There is enough warp here for about 2 more towels, and then I plan to tie on the warp for pale blue cloth.
Have a pleasant weekend!
