One of many...

One of many applies to a lot of things in my life right now.
One of many piles of mess.
One of many paint brushes.
One of many big sloppy kisses.
One of many scout woven tees...this is my fourth version of this lovely pattern.
I have made it up in a knit, two rayons and now a double gauze.
As this was my fourth version it came together in about 4 hours, no joke. I spent more time worrying about pattern placement as no one wants a spotty boob. I bought the Nani Iro fabric and matching bias binding from an Etsy seller on a whim a month or two back.

Pattern: Scout woven tee by Grainline Studios
Size: 6 grading out to a 12 at the hips
Fabric: 1.1metres of Nani Iro Japanese Gauze, plus matching bias binding
Alternations: Added 3.1cms to the length and 2-3cm sway back adjustment (it wasn't enough see pooling in last photo)
I'm hoping the fabric softens up a fair bit as its quite stiff in a way, which affects the style of the tee, I'm not sure its the most flattering of tops, but it is good sun protection and it fills a gap in my mummy lifestyle. First worn on our weekend trip to Sydney, I managed to leave all my accessories at home except my sunglasses!

I'm currently chatting away while lying in bed across the way from Sew Busy Lizzy. It's hard to believe frocktails is finally here! 

Nicole, myself and Rachel flew in yesterday and had a great time wandering around Surry hills and china town. We visited the fabric store and tessuti, both of which had their remnant tables/bins plundered by myself and Liz. Sorry, not sorry to the ladies going shopping there today! And we're off to visit some more fabric shops of Sydney!

For those lucky ladies going to frocktails tonight remember it's 6pm for 6.30 start at China Republic. 

In advance I just want to thank everyone for coming and hope that we all have an amazing time!

Frocktails an update.

Just a little update, as Frocktails is a little over a month away!
We have a venue booked, some of the interstaters have flights booked, things are a go!
I'm currently struck down with the nastiest bout of food poisoning I have ever had but I'm hoping to send out all the details in a day or two. 
I hope you're all sewing away!
