Spring Sewing Swap

I was so excited to participate in the Spring Sewing Swap this year organised by the lovely Kerry from Kestrel Makes.  It's one of the things I really loved when I first got into the world of sewing blogs.

I was paired up with Emma Jayne from Clipped Curves.  if you don't already follow her blog, you should as she makes excellently fitted garments (check her sailor trousers!) with a nautical flair.  Basically I want to be her when I grow up!

She also lives quite close to me so we are hoping for a meet up for coffee and sewing chat some time soon!

Here's the lovely bundle she sent me:

Navy twill
a lightweight bird print cotton
navy twill tape
cute stripy buttons

plus this excellent vintage A-line skirt/ culottes pattern (with pockets!  I love pockets!)

Hop over to Emma Jayne's blog to see what was in the parcel I sent her (being much more organised than me, she has already blogged about it here!).

Thanks for organising Kerry - roll on next year!


  1. Ooh! Lovely! Lucky you. Love the bird print.

  2. Beautiful fabric, looking forward to seeing those. Jo x

  3. I love the bird print, what a gorgeous colour. I also like the culottes - I surprised myself by liking a similar pattern on eBay recently. I'd thought that wearing them in the 90s would have put me off but obviously not :)

    1. i'd love to see you make some culottes kerry! go for it!


Thanks for your comment - it's great to hear from you!
