Ok, forgive me the shots of the kitchen floor but when I did these I didn’t have my dressmaking dummy. The first piece of clothing was made from my Nana’s cardigan and jumper that I was given after she passed away. My Nana was a woman of style, she always had her hair and make – up done, had an amazing collection of shoes (in the same size as my sisters and I) and was very fashionable. A few items of my Nana’s wardobe will find their way onto this blog – it’s my way of keeping her close.
Firstly took the sides of the cardigan in, then I cut the arms off the jumper and added them to the cardi. This bit was hand sown as I hadn’t got my sewing machine out of the attic.
