Mad hatter

So finally, here is the hat I made...i'm wearing it on our anniversary weekend away in London. Ben even took me on the carousel.  Seems strange to think it was quite a cold weekend when now we are bathed in glorious sunshine.
The hat was made from the same pattern pack as my cape (still yet to blog a picture of that). I pinned a flower brooch onto to the hat which i got from the Uniform Project. I'm pretty chuffed with it. It's even got a marimekko print lining.

I also made myself a little nightie - Also with marimekko print - i really love it and it almost seems too lovely to keep inside the house! Next plan is a lightweight dressing gown. I found some great stripey material at a local shop which will be perfect. I also found some floral curtain material which looks good. Do you ever feel weird about dismantling someone elses work - i felt a little bad about unstitching the curtains and lining - it was all handstitched so neatly.
We've got a holiday in France coming up and i wanted to make something for that....i'm not sure what yet. My friend suggested a little jumpsuit/playsuit thing but I'm not so sure.....suggestions welcome


  1. Hello, sorry I'm writing about this here but I wasn't sure you'd get the message if I answered you on my blog! It's about the Japanese top sew-along, I'm willing to do it even if it's only the two of us^^ When would you like to start? Nice hat by the way^^

  2. Well I should have plenty of time on Sunday so we can officially begin there? Did you have a look at the free nani iro patterns? Which one would you be interested in?

  3. Hi Phill, how are you? Have you already bought your fabric for the sew-along? I'm interested in this design:
    What do you think?
