Oh No,I've Caught A Man Cold!

Okay,perhaps not quite a ''man cold'',but three weeks of feeling rotten is not much fun.
So being a bear of very little productive brain today I decided to sew all seven 2+2 blouses at once. I figured the slower the better at the moment.

So,the roll call....Two for Missy M both City Weekend
                        ....Two for Missy L again City Weekend
                        ....Three for the Twins, one in City Weekend,one in a orange no-name floral and a third in a white embroidered cotton.

2+2 buttons from dear friends Justine,Peta and Melani

Today I interfaced the back facings and stitched them in place.

That'll do Pig,that'll do.....


  1. I am looking forward to seeing the finished products....they look like they will be beautiful.
    I ordered some coloured MOP buttons the other day. I'm so excited about them arriving! Silly, huh!?

  2. Thanks Millie,trying to set a target to do a bit each day!

    Excited about MOP buttons silly? Wash your mouth out! Those shiny things give me so much pleasure...

    Promise you will do a show&tel when they arrive?

  3. At least it's not all one colour this time so more interesting for you, hopefully it'll lift the rotten feeling. I love the orange no name floral. My husbands goddaughter wants a bright orange dress for her birthday in July, so I'm noticing orange everywhere.

  4. That is going to be such a beautiful lot! I'm on the edge of my seat in anticipation! Have you ever found it necessary to add length to these? Wondering if I should do that on the ones I make in the future for A.

    Hope you're feeling better soon!

  5. Thanks Angela,the different fabrics do make it more fun!
    I loved orange at 12-maybe its a pre-teen thing?

    This is the best fitting pattern I have found(for my girls,in this brand) no need to lengthen at all.
    But Missy A is quite tall!
    Thank you for your good wishes.

  6. Can't wait to see these finished! They are going to be beautiful
    (hope you've got enough buttons??)
    Rosie requested a 2+2 for herself yesterday - looks like I'm adding it to my list too!

  7. Thank you Justine!
    The buttons are gorgeous-you are so kind!
    I love big girls in the 2+2 blouse's. Rosie will look lovely!
