I wasn't quite sure what to post for this. I've only ever won one sewing related item, which was recently and I blogged about it here. However I really liked the Dove Fitted T pattern and knew I wanted to make it again so I chose this as my opportunity to do so!
This time I used African Printed Cotton that I bought last summer at Walthamstow Market whilst I was in London. I really fell in love with the African Cottons, they're stunning colours and easy to work with prints. They are also super economical - I bought 5 yards of this for £10.00. I've already made up the Colette Hazel dress which I wore on really warm days on holiday and it was quite comfortable.
I won the pattern on ZoSews giveaway with Sinbad and Sailor patterns and was really grateful to them for choosing me as the winner as that giveaway wasn't a random win but rather based on our answers as to why we sew. This gave me an instant boost and I couldn't wait to make up the top and got to work straight away on it! As I shared on the post about it, I loved it! It fitted perfectly and the fabric I used made up really well. I've worn it quite a few times with great comments from friends about it.
I'm a big advocate of Indie pattern companies and anything I can do to support them in as must. So I ask you all to check out Sinbad & Sailor and treat yourself to one of their patterns. I think the Raven Shorts pattern might be a contender for the matching shorts I'm planning!
