Inspired by the Sea Wardrobe - was 4th on PR.


You may remember the 'Inspired by the Sea' collection. I entered it in to the Wardrobe Contest on Pattern review and came 4th. And that's not bad for a wardrobe sewn in one month. (If you voted for me then a big 'Thank You' I really appreciate it)

I must admit I don't love the corduroy trousers which came out rather shapeless (far right), so they are going to have a makeover. They are very comfortable but definitely look like they should be worn by a Cheshire farmer with his wellies and coat which was not quite the look I was going for.

I have worn everything except for the navy stretch denim skirt and the teal cowl neck top. Its always good when you see 'own sewn' things coming through the laundry.

Congratulations to the winner - Barbara V - and the 2nd (littlejazzbird ) and 3rd(HawkeMorningStar7) placed people. If you want to see them all they are at

Congratulations on your placing in the contest. You deserve it, this wardrobe was lovely and very practical as I know you have worn pieces from it quite a bit already, and that is the true prize.
