The lovely warm summer days are over for now and the upcoming rainy days will be a good time for some reflection on the season that has just past.
What is it that makes us love summer days so much? Is it the the warmth or the long daylight? Or perhaps it’s the association we have with summer days and fun, adventures, discoveries, some relaxation and travel, vivid colours and delicious food?
To cheer me up on this otherwise dull rainy day in London and to prolong the hope of a few bright days, I made a silk blouse that I hope to wear a few time before the autumn’s reign gives way to winter.
I used one of my old patterns that I had created a long time ago, when my all time favorite blouse needed to be retired. I took the blouse apart, piece by piece, and use them as the pattern for new items of clothing.
You can do the same, but ensure that the fabric on your old and new item is similar enough, that way less adjustment will be needed.
Try a few projects like this and before you know it, the whole process will become easier and enjoyable.
I hope this will inspire you to be even more creative then you already are.
If you still need more inspiration, I’ve come across a new magazine, full of great ideas for the home, short stories and great photos.
It is called The Simple Things and the first issue is out now . This new magazine is full of ideas for home, short stories and great photos. I am looking forward to their issue no 2.
Good luck creating!
