Recently, I was lucky enough to be chosen to be part of the Minerva Crafts Team. As part of this team, we get to choose some lovely fabric from a selection sent out each month. We then commit to making a garment and a blog post which is then put up on on their website. You also have to commit to completing the garment and the blog within 4 weeks of receiving the fabric. There are many of us in the Team and I think we are from all different backgrounds and have different styles and levels of sewing experience.
The choice of fabrics is a bit overwhelming but in a good way! I decided that my criteria for choosing would depend on the time of the year and any gaps in my capsule wardrobe for that season. I also wanted to use patterned I had not used before and maybe try out some new fabrics.
For my first project I chose some rayon challis in a teal colour. I made the Buttons Bettine Dress, a casual, easy to wear dress, for summer. This is the one I am wearing above.
For my second project, I chose some micro fleece to make a warm top. I used another Tilly pattern, the Nora top. This one is due to go live in September.
