A Plan

A plan. A plan, yes, I have a plan.

It's a plan for sewing. Remember last Friday that I was coveting this shirt from the newly (to me, anyway) improved Burda Style site?


I'm especially loving a version of this shirt that had contrasting fabric on the cuffs. Oooh, I can totally see myself wearing it. I might need to lengthen the waist a bit so that I can maintain back coverage while bending over.

But it's been a while since I've given the sewing machine a workout. Don't you think it would be a good idea to get warmed up first? I do. It was on Nikki-Shell that I saw this bag. [ETA: The bag in the photo was sewn by the pattern's designer, Ali. Nichola made a version of her own--you can see it on her blog.]


Cute, eh? Incidentally, Nikki-Shell also created the shirt that you see above. The fact that she used both of these patterns is a complete coincidence. Apparently, great minds think alike :-).


That Nikki-Shell is talented and creative! I adore both the shirt and the bag. I know you can do both if you put your mind to it, Colleen! Very cute!

that bag is adorable - and i love the contrasting collar and cuff shirt too - you could warm up by just changing the collar and cuffs on a shirt you already own.... but then you wouldn't have the cool bag, so maybe you need to make that first! In time for spring, in case it actually shows up.
