Occasionally it seems that world is in pure chaos with nothing making sense, but that doesn't matter as long as I can sew. Sewing is a form of art, or at the very least creativity, and a form of expression. A great outlet for the tension of everyday life. Also you can make cute things. The craft revolution is truly taking place, old skills are being revived by a new generation, but with a seriously modern twist.

I've made Mario pillow cases, a giraffe print background, and turned duvet covers into summer dresses. I enjoy making something unique, special, and me- then I like wearing it and watching it fall to pieces or not fit properly. Then I enjoy (slightly less) fixing it.

One day I shall have a room filled with glorious fabrics and boxes of notions, and on that day I will have found my nirvana. But until then this blog will exist as my virtual haberdashery and sewing room. Hopefully you'll enjoy looking at my creations as much as I enjoy looking at other blogs, and you'll be inspire to make something of your own.

Cotton Shorts

After my High Waisted Denim Shorts success I decided to use some other denim I had, which was very thin cottony denim and make some more.  I used the same pair of existing shorts to copy around as they fit me, but are a bit too short. 

I like these for casual, comfy days.  I think I will take them on my holidays, they are very plain and they do, have a 'mum jeans' look about them.  They look ok with a long top but less flattering without.  But that's pretty much always true with high waisted stuff.
