stitching at stone cottage




a weekend to myself, well nearly to myself, meant i could spend it 'Stitching At Stone Cottage', with this ancient book full of daggy patterns, fantastic for drafting and modernising.
mona was overworked, but didn't complain at receiving the occasional pin stick. here she is modeling in the stitching room for me..

great skirt pattern with:

-pleat front and A-line back,

i took the zip out as its a knit fabric, cut down the waist and added a roll down waistband...

now i just need a trip to the city to find some nice black boots to wear with it...
