Pink Haired Lady (with a Sew-Along Idea)
We only did the tips, despite me bursting out with "let's just do the whole thing!" every now and then. Fleur suggested starting small. She's hardly a model of restraint in these things, so it seemed wise to listen when she's holding back.
She bleached it first, and then we dyed it with Manic Panic Cotton Candy Pink. It looked pretty good at first (see bad Instagram below).
my book! Would you all be interested in making some Portrait Blouses? That's what I'm wearing above. It's the easiest pattern in the book, so it would be a beginner-friendly sew-along. Plus it's a great wardrobe basic that can be made in lots of different fabrics, from charmeuse to cotton to wool jersey. What do you think?
