Don’t get me wrong, Velma is a great role model. To me, she was always and still is way cooler than Daphne or Fred. For a start she’s smart, then there’s the fact that she can very often be found in a library. I’m just not sure that I want to emulate her wardrobe. As far as clothes go, I think that Daphne has the edge.
The A-line shape? I need some convincing.
The pockets? Absolutely ace for storing the large number of keys that you need to open up your average library, you just have to remember not to take them home. I think what is needed here before I am totally won over by the pattern (Very Easy Vogue 8325) is a wash and a press and another wearing. Sometimes it takes me a while to accept a new arrival into the bosom of the wardrobe.
Getting better at the blind hemming, so that’s groovy. For the eagle eyed among you, I did indeed cut the back and front on the fold. Mainly so that I didn’t have the trauma of matching up paisley print on the two centre seams as well as the pockets. I also didn’t do a waistband, I don’t like them and they don’t like me. If my belly could gag whilst encased in one it would.
What else have I been up to? Well the Paperwhites are coming along a pace, maybe a flower for Chrimbo.
And can anyone recommend a snowflake pattern, preferrably crochet? I’ve had a bash but it’s a wee bit floral.
Last but by no means least, there is of course, Jungle January to look forward to. *Jumps up and down repeatedly*. The idea of which has quite literally been keeping me awake at night. I’m currently imagining some cream fake fur Tilda-Swinton-as-the-Ice-Queen affair. It’s nothing if not ambitious!

Those pockets are enormous!! You could pack your lunch and pop it in there!
I’m impressed by the blind hemming. I haven’t tried that yet.
Room for lunch, tea, supper and perhaps even a couple of kittens… Not sure that I’ve really mastered the hemming but I am getting better! Px
practice makes perfect – good excuse to sew more!
My thoughts exactly!
Pockets are gooooood. And you are rocking the Velma look 🙂
Why thank you. I did always want to be Velma when I was little. Must be destiny!
I’d recommend the snowflake pattern on the Attic 24 blog – really easy and effective.
Squeal!! Thank you. That looks like a perfick pattern. Totes amazing! (Goodness, can’t type this late on my phone. Totes came out as tites and then Tories). Prob. shouldn’t try teen speak.
