I picked up some pinecones on my daily penance (walk). When they open up, I will tip them with silver, green and red acrylic paints then pile them in a bowl nearer the time.

How about cushion covers instead? Morris one side, plain the other.

Hi, what machine have you got? Here we sew everything on  old good basics to fancy machines.

I agree with @Efemera. Remember you have to get the waistband over your hips, then fit snugly on the waist. Just make up a trial waistband to check this.

Missie, can you gently persuade her to go for something like a marl that's much easier to match, and easier to wear after the event? Tartan sounds a nightmare.

I have some cream stretch bra strap going spare...

Thanks- the silk/cotton looks good if it is suitable for a top.

@Acorn, in normal times, I could wear (in layers with other things) woollies eight months of the year.But here in Bristol UK it has been summer wear since end April. So my wardrobe needs lots of additions.
I have the fabrics, just need to get started.

After reading this in lockdown, I am going to start again with my non-woolly clothes.
But as recluse, I may have to invent an exciting life.

I have a terrible urge to buy cream washed silk- can anyone recommend a site?

My 1015 is almost identical to the 1008, and has been running for nearly 30 years.
It is a Rolls Royce machine,  but a cheaper Janome does the same thing.

Her basic machine might be okay with a few lessons?

Everyone, you need to value yourselves and your time more.
Come on @Manuela , tell us what you told the woman who wanted you to make her a dress...

I have wide shoulders, narrow hips, not much definition in between. Nothing springs to mind.

Sounds like we all have too many unused patterns. How about folks describing the style and size they want, and peeps like me posting them out?
I would do it free in the UK.
