Subversive Femme

1940s Fair Isle Beret and Mittens, Bestway 1226

I know it’s been a bit silent here at the moment – but believe me, I’ve been working my little heart out trying to get the Billie Jean dress to fit the way I want! Four muslins down, and I’m finally happy with the fit.  (large bust size + princess seams = trouble for me).

More about that later.

It so cold here in Sydney at the moment, I love it! Rugging up, electric blankets on, pulling out the wool coats. It’s also reminded me that I meant to sew a new coat last year and completely forgot.

I wish I had time to make this little fair-isle set from Bestway, its adorable. Maybe you might have the time?

Hope you like it!
