Bit late for WOYWW because I have been helping Wipso with some curtains and cutting out.
She loves it, as I have to grovel on the floor at her feet as I cut big curtains on the floor!! It didn't take all day so we enjoyed a bit of quality time together too.
On my desk today is the WIP. I told you last week I was designing a new top for Wipso and lots of you kind folk said you wanted to see my progress.
So, as you see from my photo, there is a brown paper pattern in a plastic bag and a very colourful toile made from odd bits of sheeting. (A toile is just the garment cut out and made up in cheap fabric so that it can be tried on an adjusted before cutting out in best fabric).
In the middle is my rough sketch and on the right you can see the partially made top ready to take for Wipso to try for final adjustments before finishing.
Off I went down to help with the curtains and to surprise Wipso with a half finished top.
We tried it on and tweaked it a little and then I finished it.
I am sure when I make it up in the next piece of fabric - a gorgeous red piece - it will look even better.
Now you know Wipso hates having her photo taken but she decided I could reveal all to you, so here you are folks........
She loved the top even though it was made in my choice of fabric - just a piece I had in my fabric stash. It was still unfinished at this stage but we rushed out into her garden for a little photo shoot and had her elderly neighbour giggling from her bedroom window watching me do my David Bailey act!!!
Now I am off to visit a few blogs whilst the footie is on. Join in with WOYWW by going over to Julia's blog and following the links on Mr Linky.
Oh and Hi to Linby who we met for the first time on Monday eve. What a lovely lady!!!
