Hemming, mending and alterations.

7:20 pm

Vintage smock, hemmed, buttons removed and sleeves shortened. 
That's what I've been up to today. My pile of mending, and hems needing turning up, plus nursing bra alterations was teetering on a chair in the kitchen, and had been for some time.
Today I decided to tackle it, and I'm glad to say I've made a jolly good dent. There are still some sheets to hem for Ernest's bed and some school trousers that need taking up for Sid, but mostly I'm glad to have got through most of it.

1940's style playsuit hemmed ready for summer.

Vintage Mary Quant riding skirt, hemmed to size for India (more to come on this!)

Hoping that tomorrow I can get through the rest and do some more interesting stitching too.

Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. I love the playsuit Jeanette! It really suit you!

  2. I was very unsure about the playsuit and planned to cut it into a dress, but the girls convinced me to keep it. I have to say it's very comfy. :)

  3. Oh yes, well done the girls, it is lovely as it is.
