My Inheritance

Added Sep 13, 2015

Tauranga, New Ze...






6 years ago today my mum died and I inherited a blanket box full of her sewing bits and pieces. I go through it from time to time and this week I decided to make up this piece of jacquard. The remnant of crepe for the sleeves was in there too. She would be so pleased nothing is being wasted. Ha ha. Probably not really my choice but I’m happy with it, and I’m sure she would be too. Dress is a Style Arc pattern “Mary” and Burda Cropped Jacket 02/2011.

      Kind of you to say, I will continue to wade through the rest of it over time I guess.

    I love both pieces, although the jacket is my favourite! Sure your mum would love to see her materials used in such a pretty outfit !!!

      Thank you, yes I’m sure I’ll get heaps of wear out of the jacket, good colour to go with my jeans.
