Simplicity 3835

I was not sure about this shirt when I made it last night. I wouldn't say it is the most flattering pattern. It is growing on me today. It was so quick to make. I used Simplicity 3835 and it was done in no time. It is made from voile so it will be very cool in summer and I can easily feed Eva in it so I think I will be making another one soon.

A glimpse of my desk today.
Some fantastic mail I received today. This would have to be the most useful sewing book I own. There is information to do nearly everything from putting in zips to binding to buttonholes to making cushions. It is by Ruth Singer who has a wonderful blog here.

You know I have made that shirt and I am not sure about it...

Great looking book - wish the AUS$/US$ thing was a little better. I had to leave all my 'wish list' on Amazon for the moment...
