- Been drawing my dad's gloves. Noticing the shape of our collective hands that the gloves have taken on and how much the wrinkles and creases in the leather are similar to the palms of hands. I'll put more pics in my stories....Some more mending for my pile. These mittens have a very long history ..... I remember wearing them at school, they eventually got too small and became my mum's. She still wears them and was telling me today how they had a hole and she was going to have to get rid of them 😱 (so much i could say about that but not enough space here!) So obviously I said I'd fix them. Not sure exactly how yet but I'll find a way 🪡Finally managed to get into my workshop and spend a few hours doing a bit of printing.....Thought I'd share another of my #wellwornwellloved garments for my #thepeopleswardrobe project. If you want to contribute a garment, post a pic of the garment (with you wearing it ideally 😁), describe a bit of its story and sum it up with 3 words. (More details on my blog.)

At long last, the MIY Collection Walkley Vest & Dress is now available as a complete making kit.
The kit contains everything you need to make a vest or dress:
- printed pattern
- beautiful quality viscose/lycra ponte roma in a choice of 4 colours (enough to allow for shrinkage when you pre-wash your fabric)
- and matching thread.
All delivered straight to your door with free P&P (UK only) so you can just get sewing.
See inspiration for how to make the Walkley on this Pinterest board as well as links to blogger reviews of the pattern from Handmade Jane, Scruffy Badger Time, Paprika Patterns and more!

The MIY Collection Walkley Vest was originally made by Jane in November (see her original review of the pattern here).
I was then over the moon to see it included in Jane’s best makes for 2015! I think my favourite (apart from her stripey Walkley obviously!) is that black dress….gorgeous.
