Autumn palette continued

Since it's slightly addictive and because I forgot to put on some of the most important parts of the palette I had in my head the last time I did this, here's round two!

I've ordered some more fabric from the internet as it was on sale and I just could resist as it's velvet cord, two of my most favourite words to see on fabric listings in one fabric, how could I not buy it?

I like how I've made a whole outfit on the first two rows.  I probably won't buy the bag or the purse, but may try and make something similar, but will definitely get the tights and will think very very hard about the shoes or put them on a wish list, although may try and find a similar pair cheaper somewhere.  I need to double check what fabrics can be used with the picnic dress, but if alls ok I'm going to use the blue jersey I have in my stash to make it in and again need the tights.  I've been eyeing up the Parfait dress pattern which is most definitely on the wish list and think I may make it in the Maybe Sixpence as due to a delightful miss purchase have suddenly found it in my stash! haha!  The last square is the colour palette I spent ages working on and then promptly forgot to put on the last palette thingy.

I have to say thank you to J for the endless technical support with this as he's often taken the laptop off me before I did something unspeakable to it as it wasn't doing what I wanted it to do, until he showed me how! 

I took the cardi refashioned yesterday for a spin today and then forgot to take a photo to show it off, so will have to do a picture another day, but can safely say it works!  Speaking of work, I'm desperately trying to get some time off so I can do some real work, sewing but no luck as yet...ho hum.


  1. Your collage thingy looks good, I'm so impressed your making another Liverpool! lol And that Amy Butler velvet lovely. Hope you can get some time off to start sewing! (and glad the maybe sixpence will come in handy!)

  2. I'm loving your plans. Those colours are Really pretty, gorgeous!

  3. Thank you ladies! I'll be making two more liverpools if everything goes to plan as want to use that laura ashley cord to make one too...Hope I don't get bored but just love cord and shirt dresses!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment!
