Thanks for the clarification @Iminei.  Come on Londoners, surely we can drum up 11 bods.

What about frog fastening? It doesn't have to be anything too elaborate.

@Francesca: these days a couple of hours is enough for me.  For those less familiar with the show, half a day is plenty.

I normally go on the first day when it's relatively quiet and consequently less hot, but if we can muster the numbers for a group save, Saturday is okay.

I have no money for a big spend, but still go.  Last year, I bought the button spacer from the Lutterloh demo stand and was really pleased.

@Marniesews: nothing from LittleBird this year.  :(

I normally go.  You just need to find 10 more people.

I think I have missed the ticket offers - none on Groupon, the London ticket club or LittleBird from which I have bought heavily discounted tickets in the past.

@StitchinTime: the code has definitely expired and the site says so in no uncertain terms.

Knitting & stitching is a travelling show and as well as London (March and October) there is Harrogate and Dublin.  The  Glasgow leg has been dropped.

This pattern suits my smallish waist and I would go for view B.

New from Stylearc.  Shudder.  It's fine for the Duchess of Sussex, who is a twig, but would look hideous on me even if I wanted to go back to the 90's.

Patterns Discussion / Early Autumn McCall's

From the US site, the alleged new patterns - some of them look quite familiar and possibly a hangover from the summer issue.




has several possibilities and is there will be more hand holding so far as the instructions are concerned than the similar Burda pattern I liked.

Hi, I'm new... / Re: Hello Everyone, I'm Ollie.

@ollie: pretty much what Iminei posted, although you example is less flattering. 0_0  It's basically just a skirt with straps added and should not be too challenging to replicate.  Personally, I don't like gathering, but the choice would be yours and maybe your girlfriend's to get something she would really wear and appreciate.

Hi and welcome Ollie.

I think @Iminei has supplied a picture of what you mean by 'suspender skirt' but if you have images, they would be helpful with pattern suggestions.

@Silver Rose: not to worry about trying to get a full length pic.  What I can see is great.
