At Christmas she bought me the Colette book and thought it so lovely she ended up with her own copy. Since then I'm pleased to say that I have been the inspiration to my Mum to restart sewing. We have had lots of fun pouring over patterns and fabrics, discussing finer points, even a good and honest measuring of each other!
When my Mum last came to visit me she bought along her first efforts in many years. Here she is :
Isn't the dress great! The neckline is so flattering, it's a great fit and a wonderful style on her. . Look at the fabric close up, my Mum is so cool.
I'm so pleased my Mum has taken up sewing again. Although it has highlighted similarities and differences between us. She is a perfectionist who will go over and over the same point making it all right. Personally I'm a bit more slap dash and prone to impulses, maybe we could share our personalities out and both be perfect !!
