If any of you saw my Instagram post on Saturday you will have already had a sneak preview of this month's Ripley's Challenge. She's been at it again and stolen some of my stuff, the cheeky little madame. But I forgive her as she did look resplendent in her blue chevrons.
The fabric we want you to identify this month is the one that my lovely new Brigitte headscarf is made from. I made it for Tilly Walne's online book launch for Love at First Stitch, Demystifying Dressmaking, her beautiful debut into the world of sewing books. Read my review of the book here.
The actual real life book launch that we were so excited to be invited to was just amazing! The venue, Drink Shop Do on the Caledonia Road is a must visit for all you crafty folks. Utterly cool and brilliantly fun. I am so going back to have a go at their Lego robot making competition ... or maybe the Lionel Rich Tea night ... tea towel screen printing ... or even play with clay Dolly Parton style .... too ... much ... cool stuff going on!
It was great to get to see all the clothes from the book up close - I really do need to make me a Mini blouse, or four - utterly timeless and so beautiful.
We're stocking the book in our shop in Wendover, as well as the GBSB Sew You Own Wardrobe book. Both are amazing, with full size pattern pieces for all the projects included, so basically they're both a total bargain. If you're in or close to Wendover, stop in and have a little browse.
More fun from Ripley again this month so stay tuned!
