Cadence completed!

Finished my Cadence sweater and love it. Once I had got past the lace pattern it was plain sailing. I can't really sew while watching TV so knitting is what keeps me awake while watching my shows!

The finished article!

Sewing and Knitting Update

Well it's been over a month since I last posted. Life has been very hectic as often happens. My parents were visiting from overseas, plus my role at work changed, so major learning curve there. All in all sewing took a bit of a back burner for a while. But I am back!!

At the weekend I cut out a pair of black stretch denim jeans (Jalie pattern) and the muslin for the Colette Patterns Lady Grey coat. Spent the last half an hour making some adjustments to the muslin which I plan to transfer to the pattern pieces tomorrow and then cut out the shell and lining. the lapels gaped, as did the back. I have also reshaped the lapels as t=I felt they were a little big for my frame.
