FO: MIY Brightside Shrug Hack

Just a quickie from me today! I’m deeply absorbed in finishing off an exciting project that I need to have ready to share with you by Friday. From March to October, sewists from across the UK are sewing one of 20 featured vintage dressmaking patterns, ranging from the 1930’s to the 1960’s, as part of The McCall Pattern Company’s Big Vintage Sewalong. Yeah I know, right?! TOTALLY out of my comfort zone! But as is often the case when we push ourselves, interesting things can happen 😉 Anyway, I’m up for the blogger contingent on Friday, and proud to be taking part in the event in support of the Eve Appeal. You can find out more about the event, the charity, and how you can take part here. Look out for my contribution on Friday!

In the meantime, and much more in my comfort zone, I’m indulging in a little pattern hackery and guest posting at Wendy Ward’s MIY Collection blog, with this hack on her Brightside Shrug….MIY BRIGHTSIDE SHRUG HACK (

Yep, I turned it from a little cropped number into a “bootay and muffin top covering” longline version in this French Terry from Girl Charlee!

Hop over to Wendy’s blog for the full deets AND an exclusive Makery discount code! Wendy doesn’t often do discounts, so grab it while you can!!

In the meantime, wish me luck with my BV Sewalong project! I’ll be finishing it up today and tomorrow. At the moment it’s looking REALLY promising. Eeep! Fingers crossed!
