SEWING

This week I'm wearing my Anna Dress (By Hand London). A great pattern for adventurous beginner sewists! 

Halloween costume plans: This year I'll be going as Feyre from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series, by Sarah J. Maas. (Amazon Link)
McCall's M6893

The smallest pattern size was still too large for me, so I used the pivot technique to decrease the bustline to fit my own ... and it's GENIUS!  (YouTube video by Professor Pincushion)

BookMarkdTattoos — The Etsy shop, where I found my Feyre tattoo. 
Found my fairy / elf ears on Amazon. 
Cauldron from Target ;) 

In previous episodes I talked about and started making a muslin for the Violet blouse, by Colette Patterns. But I decided the style was not for me. 

Instead, I'm making Simplicity's 8294 (View C)
