Creating a pattern from RTW

Hello there!

Happy Black Friday everyone!
How is everyone doing?!
Got that Christmassy feeling yet?!
I am totally there already, can’t wait to get the tree down this weekend!

So what have I been up to today?! Well I have been given the job of sewing up copy of a couple of lovely linen tops.

Pictured above is the first of the two! I have to say the construction of this is divine…. I am in awe!

All seams bar the arm holes are double turned. Leaving no room for error on the top stitch!

So after 4 hours of ripping out, yes 4 hours! I now have the sewing instructions noted down and the whole pattern cut out, with seam allowance added where required.

So here she is all ready for me to get sewing up on my new industrial machines at work tomorrow.

I have to say the only part I am going to struggle with is the pocket!

It’s my first time doing a pocket like this! Have you done one before?! Any tips welcomed in the comments.

So like I said earlier happy Black Friday! Is anyone doing a little shopping?! I headed straight over to the craftsy sale! and picked up 3 classes from my wish list…. I got the classes for £13.99 each! BARGAIN!!

Get a little Christmas shopping done for me I say! Are you a fan of craftsy? If not you should be! It’s a great way to learn at home, I have 2 kids and part time job to work round and this works great for me!

Let me know if you sign up for anything! I picked up a couture class as well as a couple of others!
