Plenty of sewing, but

nothing is quite finished.

First up is the Minoru, which is now at the point where the lining needs to be attached to the main fabric, elastic at the waist, hems and a lot of topstitching.

Then there is Jalie 3129 Women's Vest, View C that I traced off and cut out on Friday which needs some hand sewing, more topstitching, buttonholes and buttons.

I am very happy with both of these garments and will share more details when they are wearable :)

AND, my wonderful Easter gifts,
  •  My Mum and Sister visited on Good Friday for a lot of catching up, and
  •  I was 1 of the winners of the five Simplicity/New Look Patterns that Tilly and the Buttons had to give away from the OWOP Challenge. How good is that!

Now to check out the Simplicity website and choose 5 Simplicity/New Look Patterns.

Gasp, what a jacket, even if not finished. What a sensational wardrobe you are going to have. And pardon me if I don't sympathise, having to pick FIVE patterns, you poor dear!!! There certainly are some really nice ones coming these days. Look forward to seeing what you make.
