The visual diary is a brilliant invention but for me, most of the time, it just feels like another thing that takes up my time and gets in the way of the actual making.
Sometimes when I finally get the time to sit down and make something I feel so overwhelmed by all my ideas that I don't know where to start. And then other days, like today, I feel like I have had so much time to process this idea that it comes together straight away.
In my head I had already planned this smock top. I knew which bits would be odd, what shape it would take and I had sorted out all the added details like the pocket and the binding. So when I had a minute to choose the sheets, cut the pattern and stitch it all together it was quick and easy.
The sleeves are a concession to the slightly cooler weather forecast this week but I am not going near my stash of cord and denim til March or April. I am not a fan of cooler weather or sewing.
I hope your Monday is a funday. XX
