o.k. it seems that I forget pretty easily...
Do you remember me saying, "Never shades again? Or blinds? or other window treatments esp. not for anybody else than me or close family?"
I do remember. So why am I sitting here sewing ( or better altering ) the shades of my neighbour? Because
a) I can't say no
b) I really like them A LOT
c) she did help. But I'm better without help when I had a bad day at work, so we did not finish all blinds yesterday. So I spend another hour tonight for the third shade or whatever ( gardine ;) )and will alter the last 2 at the weekend.
So there are no news from the trenchcoat except that I bought stuff for my sleeveheads today... Plus a lot of stuff for my vintage/couture project.
If you are interested. We do have a Claire Shaeffer Sew Along blog ( in German ) to keep us motivated to try out all these great techniquwa.
