Murphy's Law strikes again.

I cut out 2 long sleeve tops last night. Now of course the forecast is for a warm spell. Typical. Never mind, cold is a-comin' so I'll get to wear them soon. At the rate I'm sewing, they might even be done in time for winter! Shock and horror. First up, because the overlocker is threaded in black already, is a black (how'd you guess?) version of an un-maternity-ified Ottobre 02-2007-20. After that is a mesh version of the Ottobre Rose top, without the rose... and with long sleeves that aren't puffed. (For the drawings see here.)






Talking of Ottobre, my Ottobre magazine finally arrived! Yayy!!! Considering they were sending it the Wednesday before Easter, it didn't do badly getting across the world already. I've had a read through, mused a bit and there's more in it I like than I'd originally picked from the website. It'll be delivered over for Judy to use tomorrow. After all, can't have the girl popping out of her clothes now, can we? ;-)



I'm off to see how much sewing I can get done in an hour.....

Tell me about Murphy's Law! It's supposed to be getting a little warmer here and it was absolutely freezing today. Cold, dreary, wet--and it's supposed to be like that all week.

Done by winter? We are not out of winter up here where I live. I am still looking at snow out the window. I find I need to sew "summery" things to keep my sanity. Thanks for putting my blog on your blog roll. It is greatly appreciated. I enjoy reading your blog to and have added it to mine.

So is Ottobre like Burda? The patterns and directions are in it already? Why doesn't the US have an equivalent to Burda or Ottobre? Actually, maybe I'm glad they don't since I don't like a lot of the patterns of the Big 4.

Hehehe - thanks Keely. It's a bit firghtening to out-grow maternity clothes with three months to go......
