Lately, it feels like I can’t get as much as I want done. I am in the middle of cleaning the house, making a dress, cataloguing patterns, and the list goes on. Little Prince is of course at the top which makes acheiving all the other stuff challenging at times! Yesterday we had a lovely day out in town and stopped off at a wonderful chocolate shop call KOKO BLACK… wonderful for a warm cup of hot chocolate… enough to make one forget there are lots of things to be finished!
Today’s pattern of the day is a Schiaparelli, one of the Vogue Paris Original models I covet so much…. The dress requires bound buttonholes, which I have been doing lots of reading about lately… and can’t wait to try. Believe it or not, I also am really keen to try hand stitched buttonholes… beeswax and all…! I think the care of small details can make a garment truly special.
