That's lovely fabric @Sara-S I really like the colours.  :thumb:

That is super @Bodgeitandscarper . I can see why the colours attracted you, they are lovely together. Well done, a labour of love indeed.  :perfect10:

I got my last lot from Amazon but before that I bought mine from the shows I go to - can't remember exactly which stall but think Barnyarns may have been one.

That embroidery makes the gift so special.
Although, when I read the title I imagined a bonsai tree with an apron around it and wondered 'why?'  :embarrassed:

In the wardrobe / Re: Alter a pattern or a toile?
« on: May 03, 2022, 11:57:16 AM »
I have my 'standard' alterations that I make to every pattern before I cut out then I make a toille and tweak it from that.

I did a pattern making course and made several slopers that fit me so I have a fair idea of what to do to make things fit. However, since that course, I have expanded in several areas  :embarrassed: and need to make new slopers but until I do I just alter the pattern to my needs. The worst was trousers - I did those sooo many times. I think I made three toilles after each toille got so hacked about and resewn as to be almost useless. I now have lovely fitting trousers though!!  :P
