Sewing, Knitting and Dancing!

You may or may not have been asking where I’ve been…

Apologies for the silence at the moment – a combination of a heavy workload, dancing events plus a few sewing projects going awry meant there wasn’t much to show right now.

Here’s a quick snapshot of what I have been up to, before Curvy Month begins.


Sneaky-peek at some jeans I made on the weekend – using my favorite pattern, EvaDress 3322 Swing Trousers. I like these even better that the last pair!

As you can tell, they’re heavily modified and I’ll have a post coming up next week showing how to add these pockets AND remove a front dart from trousers.

Brrrr… It’s so cold here in Sydney at the moment.
It’s not until the coldest day in Winter that you realise how few thick knits you own!

I’ve been knitting the cardigan from Cosy for Cold Days, a pattern from Curvy Month back in 2013.

It’s a quick knit too!

KnitPicks had Wool of the Andes on sale last month so I snapped up the most delicious black/brown, called Bittersweet. The colour is that perfect shade which should compliment most other colours.

It’s not often I post photos of us dancing but… here we are, doing the Stroll to Si Cranstoun last month at the Manhattan SuperBowl.

(If you’ve ever wanted to learn The Stroll, Lisa FreemontStreet has a great video that breaks it down here). Si Cranstoun is great, check him out if he’s ever in your town.

And that’s it!

Well, get yourselves all buckled in as Curvy Month is about to begin!

    Oh wow, great outfits one and all. You look ravishingly beautiful in the black dress. What a classic, elegant ensembles.

    I hope that July is a fun, exciting month for you as well, dear Bex.
