Summer sewing. Summer is my favourite season. I guess that many of you think that I sew summer wear pretty much all year round. Winter sewing for me is a long sleeved t-shirt, or any fabric with spandex. Well guess what? I am on the move again. To somewhere hotter. More humid. Significantly closer to the equator. Where, according to the promotional DVD, there is no need for high fashion.
I thought that I'd sew something in preparation anyway (sewing helps me ignore my anxieties, and anxieties have been running pretty high around here lately). A slip dress. It is too skimpy for me for daily wear, but will be good to throw on over swimmers to walk to the town pool. Which is accessible 20 hours per day, once you have purchased a key.
It was a quick project. I cut around my favourite Elle Macpherson slip. Side seams on the overlocker. Binding and straps on the coverstitch machine. A lettuce hem to finish off. Everything eighties is back again, isn't it? I first learnt to do a lettuce hem in the eighties, and it is entirely possibly that this is my first one since.
The place I am moving too is pretty isolated and it could take up to a month for all my stuff to get there. So I am signing off for now, as I don't have a fancy phone, or a laptop, and will be without a computer for a while. Not to mention without a sewing machine. I am not sure how I will go without sewing for a month. I have thought about digging out the socks I started to knit 2 years ago. I am not much of a knitter. I also have absolutely no need for knitted socks.
