Well hello ladies!

I love a Gypsy Blouse, and I just adore polka dots.

I actually made this top a few months ago, I had a hunch I could use it for a challenge at some point!

This vintage fabric was left over from my “Walk the Line” Dress from last year. I had just leftover fabric enough to squeeze another garment out of the leftovers – so pleased about that.

I have been absent for a while. I had major surgery in late August, I had a women’s operation

I have really missed not sewing along. I was busy doing some other sewing and sadly it took weeks to get the Sewing/Guest room ready for my mother to use while she is here, helping us out, while I recover.

As you can see from the photos we took at a park on the way home from church today, I am feeling great. I have even been doing a little sewing. Even though I forgot to put my red lippy on, it feels wonderful to be back!



Trish lives in Sydney and has way more thrifted patterns and fabric than her fair share. She studied fashion design in her former life and sews while trying to not to burn the dinner.
