|...not again! Why do I always end up looking like I only have one leg?|
My latest creation is this baked bean coloured, linen shirtwaister- my Grannie insists it’s rust, but I’m still adamant that the colour is the same as the beanie goodness found in a Heinz baked bean tin! Russet or bean orange, I’m still pleased no end by the outcome of my little sewing fling. I say ‘my’, but Mammy did have to re cut the sleeve heads and armholes (amongst doing other bits too) as the original pattern didn’t fit quite right –yeah, I’m not a normal shape! By this time, old Tuppo here had lost all hope of ever completing it (like most of my projects to date L)- still it’s finished now, thank goodness. In my defence, I did sew most of it, so I’m claiming it as my victory, well *cough* a victory that couldn’t have happened with out the ‘Ma’s’ expertise!

I shall have to state a warning here, as there are far too many photo’s coming up. I just cannot choose which pictures to put up….. When in doubt bung them all on the blog instead, I say!
