What Bright Spark ….

Decided to do such a delicate belt for the up and coming kimono! DANG I need to kick myself up the you know what!!!

This delicious vintage fabric is coming together beautifully between other projects albeit very delicate. Am employing the many skills my wonderfully talented Mum taught me over the years to ensure a lovely hand finish as well as an item that can actually be worn and not just admired! 

I have used a pattern made by Moi! Again Mum is in the picture here, she bought me a little kimono many years ago while on a trip to Canada and although it would only fit my thigh now it was the perfect template. It will be quite simple to grade up and down as these lovely garments are cleverly crafted, just a bit of simple math! Believe me I’m loving simple at the moment, got a few too many balls in the air and all my own fault. Oops!

As for the belt …. I am trying to turn it through with my silly arthritic thumbs and wishing I had made it a yard wide!!!! 

Although not yet complete I have posted some pictures of the journey this far. Am hoping to have a finished article before you by the weekend. 

Happy sewing and crafting dear creative souls if nothing on the go then just have a HAPPY THURSDAY x

    Having seen this live via skype this morning, I can tell all you Lovely Readers the fabric drapes beautifully and Samantha is probably hand stitching the front facing as I type. This will be worth every penny once it’s finished & ready for Spitalsfield! It is GAWJUS!
