I finally finished attaching the leather strap to my red tote bag. I’ll give more details in an upcoming post.
I also finished my Pilvi coat in the cotton velvet. I’ll have more about that on Saturday.
I bought myself some denim check to make the Merchant & Mills Strand coat pattern.
I received the Strand pattern, and have read through it. What a mess! Merchant & Mills are all about the pretty graphics yet neglect to make sense. It’s impossible to follow the order of steps on the instructions. I feel sorry for the sewer who needs the instructions. When I make the coat I’ll give some information to clarify.
As someone who has seen too many aged tattoos, I’m not convinced by them. But I can get behind these gold temporaries. I do think they look especially nice on darker or tanned skin.
I love a graphic bag trend. I would have guessed this picture below was Miyake not McCartney. Hum? My next bag will be boldly geometric. Maybe my next coat too.
I just never get tired of drooling over Gorman clothes. Why, oh why is there no Gorman in the UK?
