I See Crazy Patterns

Sewing as illness

Bow Selector (thanks W-Mikki)

I do like Simplicity 5924. Especially the view three, with the ridiculous collar.


Never made that one though…Stuck to view four. Three times. In brown with cream polka dots (£1.50 a metre, Brighton, 2008)…



In a sort of denimy/lilacy colour (£1 a metre, Walthamstow Market, c2001) with a bow from pink linen (that I made the top of yesterday’s ludicrous gingham number from):




And finally in a sort of unusual ribbed yellow synthetic fabric (from some sort of sale in San Francisco 2004):




And since you ask: No, I don’t like ironing. Not at all.

Potential difficulties: Er…floppy bow…and joining the collar up properly at the back.

Only really wear the brown version of these three though…never gone near the yellow one.

  1. As well as Bow-dacious I would consider some Bow-Selector pun appropriate.

  2. Oh God that’s so much better – and much more descriptive of the process one goes through when navigating a Simplicity cover! May have to change…
