It's desperate times around here. I packed up my entire sewing room back in August to get our house ready for the September auction. I knew I'd be too busy to sew before we moved house so all my fabrics and other sewing possessions got put into storage across town until we move house later this month.
But I'm seriously missing my fabrics. I'm pining for them. I don't even have needle and thread to sew on a missing button or take up a hem.
My favourite children's shop in Melbourne is Jacadi. They make beautiful, sweet children's wear that I adore. I particularly love their cardigans. Each season I visit the store to stock up on these very handy garments for Adelaide. The beauty of a cardigan is that it fits for more than one season - unlike a jumper - and can still be worn even when on the small side. Adelaide has a better knitwear collection than I do.
I justify these expensive cardigans by rounding out her wardrobe with homemade coordinates to go with them.
I've been topping up my Liberty stash of late and can't wait to be reunited with my industrial sewing machine (the removalists are going to have fun getting that beast up two flights of stairs). As soon as my sewing room is set up I will be madly cutting into these pretty Liberty lawns to make dresses, skirts and tops for Adelaide.
I'm going to be a busy seamstress between now and Christmas.
