Because I’ve taken a couple of online Crafsty courses i.e. Starlet Suit Jacket, Classic Tailored shirt and Couture Dress, I now want all the sewing supplies that the course suggest we get.
I can’t afford supplies so, I made myself a ham – following instructions found online – and I covered a tightly rolled magazine using some fabric I found when I delved into my fabric stash, to use as a sleeve roll.
Even with the hand stitching, (closing the ham and stitching the roll) it was all done in an evening. Packing the sawdust in was a pain! And it made a huge mess on my kitchen counter because I was so impatient.
Grey wool, Green print cotton, Calico lining, Pet bedding sawdust ( from Wilkinsons £1),
Scraps of fabric for packing, Toilet Roll to get the sawdust in, Something long and Narrow to pack the sawdust tightly, Determination.
Try out menswear inspired wardrobe staples, like unconventional jackets and high waisted pants.
