Tape Measures Cambie-Hack

This is one of the projects I finished during my “blog-goes-dark” months. As soon as I saw this fabric I just¬†HAD to have it. Full Price? Not a problem. Weird Heavy Drill Fabric? Don’t Care. Probably not the best colours on me? Still don’t care. IT. HAS. TAPE. MEASURES. Seriously!!! TAPE MEASURES!! I’m slowly learning… Continue reading Tape Measures Cambie-Hack

Sunshine! Lollipops! And Rainbows! Pot-of-gold Thurlows

This is one of those completely irrational projects. There were easier pant patterns available after all. And more sensible coloured fabric. But for some irrational reason I had to have golden yellow wool trousers. With welt pockets. And a fly front. It was time for my first Thurlows!
