Happy St David's Day! and Me Made March Day 1

Lovely bright yellow daffodils
Well it's March 1st so can't let it go by without some lovely photos of daffs.  I love how cheery they are, it just brightens up my day!  Here's one I made to put on my desk, but it's a bit top heavy so had to lie it down to take a photo.

I now have batteries for my camera, if you hadn't noticed, and have taken pictures of what I'm going to be making for the next week or two.

Blue, grey and yellow plaid
This is the fabric I'm going to use for the Burda vintage style skirt, I really like the waterfall style front and the waistband but am a bit worried about putting it together.

Technical drawing of pattern, the one I want to make is in the top left hand corner
The other project will be this top from the same Burda magazine January 2011:

I found this fabric in the market in Swansea and fell in love with it, it was the last two metres of fabric too...I think it was fate!

Lovely lovely slightly eye wobbling two shade of green squares

And finally here's the lovely raspberry fabric that I want to make into a dress from which pattern I used to make this top.

The colour isn't quite right, it's a bit darker and pinker but it's lovely cotton

And last but not least as this is a photo heavy post, here's what I wore today for Me Made March:

I know this is a picture you have seen before here but I'm not looking my best, I'm tired.  But I wore this dress today so it counts.  What have you been wearing for the first day of Me Made March?


  1. Exciting plans ... really adore today's dress. :-)

  2. Thank you! I'm really excited too, but after smashing my hand against the metal kitchen cupboard door handle I'm resting from sewing until tomorrow!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment!
