I must confess, when I have a full head, the nicest distraction for me is sewing. Sourcing fabric – whether it’s reclaimed or new off the roll – is delightful. Planning a garment to fill a gap. Pressing the seams (though I hate ironing ordinarily) becomes a sensory experience.
I do need some sleepwear, and have been making the kids pyjama pants for a few years now. Havn’t done any for myself, but I will. For myself, with our early summer I wanted a cotton slip. So I took an old sheet (beautiful soft cotton) and this pattern, and within an afternoon I was done. I will need to make some adjustments for the next one, but on the whole it’s a very comfortable fit and a quick sew. Because it’s nightwear I did french seams, which are such a pleasure and so satisfying.
Now I need to go find some fabric to make another. Sure beats what you find in the shops. 😉
