Inspired

Hi there,

I recently visited the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences , The Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. I love this museum but I came on this visit for just one collection the Collette Dinnigan exhibit titled “Unlaced”.The link to the website is here.

Here are my pictures an incredibly  wonderful experience :

If you ever get the chance I thoroughly recommend seeing this it is wonderful.

I have also been sewing up a storm but unfortunately not had time to blog.

I recently made a top that is a little transeasonal it is a Marcy Tilton again. I just love the shapes in her patterns. This V9057 has been on my UFO pile to make for a while and I love it .

Fabric for the body of the top was this patterned jersey.

The fabric for the sleeve and neck edge is this striped stretch slightly more of a cotton feel but works well.

The process of making this top is quite simple I made in this instance view D. However I didn’t follow the instructions in terms of fabric combinations I like to make my own choices part of the pleasure of making clothes for myself.

I found the most challenging aspect of this was matching stripes and zigzags. A lot of basting was used for accuracy and I am thrilled with the end result.

This will be a pattern I will use a lot it is not tricky has lots of scope for self expression and is easy to wear a definite winner in my opinion. I love wearing this garment.

This is really going to get loads of wear when it gets cooler but I will make some summer tops with this pattern soon.
