So I was a little gobsmacked when out of the blue 'him in doors' suggested I use his. After lots of "are you sure" and "I'm not going to sew it back together if you change your mind" he assured me that it was fine and to go ahead.
The customer had asked for a plaid /tartan fabric and while I wanted to avoid the cliched red/black tartan so frequently associated with punk I did think that a plaid would look great mixed with a stretch denim. If you know anything about the 'Ramones' you'll know that their 'uniform' was a black leather jacket and blue jeans. The stretch denim style fabric with the plaid would set off the t.shirt wonderfully.
In complete contrast I've finished my second 'Coraline' frock which I have created using a plain navy t.shirt, stretch blue fabric and a starry velour stretch fabric.
Inspired by the movie which my daughter adores and inspired by one of Coraline's outfits and hair it's a gorgeous combination of blues.
A little obsession
In my last blog post I told you about my son's recent 'Star Wars' discovery well Ella has her own little obsession and it's Coraline. Yes that Feisty little girl has made a huge impression on my soon to be 5 year old.
We had recently been on the look out for a coat for Ella and hubby, while let out on his own (always an ingredient for some disastrous purchases) found a yellow waterproof mac. The mere mention of the phrase "oh it's like Coraline's" and Ella's little face lit up and she has hardly taken it off since! And I'm not joking.
