Something which I have on my list of things to do (but which can wait until a day when I really feel like sewing so that I make a good job of it) is to make this short jacket (Butterick 5251 view C) in purple crushed velvet (which I still have to buy) for my friend Lyn.
She is getting married in September and wants everything to be unique, the way she wants it to be, very creative, very personal, very individual (like she is) and with help from her daughter and friends! I am really looking forward to the wedding as it won’t be at all conventional. She is even planning to sing with her band afterwards. It will be really lively and lots of fun!
Which I guess is why she’s one of my best friends.
