The Toni Box Bag - Let's sew some Arm Candy: African print style!

The Toni Box Bag - Let's sew some Arm Candy: African print style!

The new book from Adaku ‘Sewing with African Wax Prints’ is a project book full with colour and inspiration. The Toni Box Bag my the second project from the book and my first time creating a bag. The Toni bag is a large tote bag with a magnetic clasp. It’s lined with fusible fleece to give the bag structure and the lining can be made in contrasting fabric or like me the same fabric as the outer. 

The Jennifer Jumpsuit: The on-trend Summer staple.

The Jennifer Jumpsuit: The on-trend Summer staple.
This pattern has 4 pieces: front bodice, back bodice, front trouser and back trouser.  There is also an option to have a fully lined bodice which I didn't use at this time. The  jumpsuit came together very quickly in less than an hour.
Attaching the zips, binding neckline and sleeve edges were a breeze and instructions can be found on page 114-115; 120-121.

MEASURE TWICE CUT ONCE: How to measure yourself for the perfect fit.

MEASURE TWICE CUT ONCE: How to measure yourself for the perfect fit.

Knowing how to measure yourself accurately is key to a well-fitting garment.  For best results, ask a friend to help or take your measurements whilst looking in a full-length mirror. Wear the undergarments you would normally wear under clothes and use a flexible tape measure.  When measuring, hold the measuring tape so that it's comfortably snug but not tight. Remember to jot down your body measurements on a piece of paper for reference.
