I only show the closeup. The photo of me in the mirror looks odd. I used a BWF pattern 2006/ 05 no 134 that I added lenght in the legs to and made a draw string waist. I saw a simular pair in town last summer and I´m so glad that I finally have these pants. I´m also glad that I´m back in business, tomorrow I´m gonna go down to the basement and cut out a jacket and a skirt. I have to show you what it look like in "my" basement. The room I use for cutting is a mangel room. A mangel is a giant machine that due to pressure makes your linen and sheets wrinklefree instead of ironing. Here´s 2 pics:

I bought a linen remnant at Stof och Stil in charcoal and found a nice skirt in BWF 6/2006 but decided to use the upperpart from the skirts I made earlier and blogged about. The skirt looks like this
The hem has a nice swing but after trying it on I feel that it´s not 100% linen and it feels to warm right now. I also feel that you can´t see the cut even though I topstitched it. It´s actually more visable on the photo than in real life. Now I want to make a jacket with a lot of detail but not in this heat...

I feel I need to organize my sewing area, it´s not only the wheather that keeps me from sewing, and my bathingsuit is falling apart in front of my eyes due to clorine and salt and I know I have a piece of swim suit fabric somewhere...
Tomorrow it´s SnB!

I had to start a shawl yesterday. I´m making the feather and fan shawl and using a recycled red yarn and I choosed this pattern becourse I felt that I could end it anytime if I´m out of yarn.
Next I´m gonna make a tablecloth from offwhite cotton and there´s clothes in it too. I have to buy this book!
