I did catch up with family and friends throughout most of Easter and got in a couple of long bike rides too. Coffee and breakfast were included in these rides.
The Great British Sewing Bee.
I finally found a link to the first episode and low and behold Anne's first A-line skirt challenge uses the same fabric as my vintage military shirtmaker dress - also used by Karen and Sewhopefull.
Congratulations to all the entrants. You all did a fantastic job making this fabric into so many stylish variations.
Sandra (Dilliander) won with her 'Lekaloru' Mash up Coat. It's a combination of Lekala 4170 raincoat with the essence of Sewaholic's Minoru Jacket and a dash of Green Pepper 120 on the (zip pocket) sides.
I'm looking forward to seeing your coat soon.
