The Here and Now,

Hi All,

I have been very neglectful of my blog in recent times . I think it was hard to feel motivated to chat about my makes when I really didn’t have any interest. I was making masks like everyone being careful and staying home, helping family and not working like so many others. I had a few jobs to do in my workroom but no costume work.

In 2020 I did quite a bit of sewing and one garment I was really happy with was made using a free Mood pattern called The Wilder Top. It is wonderful that you can get so many great patterns from Mood. This pattern works really well with the embroidered mesh or organza that is around at the moment.

This pattern was really easy to make up it is one of the few that needed no adjustment at the waist, to accommodate my high waist . I did use French seams so that they would be invisible, though.

The fabric was purchased from Spotlight in a sale. I hadn’t decided what to make until I saw the mood pattern. I love it and will definitely make more from this pattern in the future.

Although it may be a slow start to 2021 as I have fractured my shoulder and had a reverse shoulder total reconstruction. As my workroom is not conducive to a sling , I will need to wait a while before I can get back in there.

I hope you have a safe and healthy Year,

Happy Sewing 🙂

    Your top is so pretty. Mood has great free patterns, but I must have missed this one. I’ve got it now. Hope the shoulder feels better soon!
