Another Week, Another Archer

Yeah, I know. I should really sew something else but goddamn it, I love this pattern. I also love this fabric, which I’ve been hoarding for ages. I think it came from The Cloth House several months back. It’s a really lovely weight and has a beautiful drape.

There’s not much more to say about this shirt really. I can’t do it up, but it’s a beauty, and I’m dreaming of tucking it into high waisted jeans with rolled up sleeves in late Spring. It’s certainly going to get lots of wear (although depending on just how quickly I can get back into my high waisted jeans…. it might be late Autumn!).

Most of my current sewing time is spent making miniature sleeves and bodices, rather than anything I can actually get myself into. As you may or may not know, I am currently about half way through a year long course in Pattern Cutting at Kensington and Chelsea College. It’s been excellent so far, but I need to get started on my final piece soon, especially this baby is due to make an appearance in the middle of the Easter holidays. It’s been so nice spending Thursday evenings completely submerged in such a fun course, particularly with people who obviously enjoy it so much – the very lovely Hannah being a case in point.

I’m also a total sucker for learning. I seem totally incapable of going 12 months without attending some form of school.I’m not sure whether I’m ever going to grow out of that, although I guess the next major learning curve is going to be parenting….! Eeeeek!
