Email from my daughter - 960 kilometres away
"could you make this for me for next saturday night in a bright red fabric, perhaps jersey?
i saw it in zara and when i went back it was gone...
it had three quarter length sleeves in the shop, this was the closest thing i could find to it.
if you cant thats ok, i know your starting your job next week."
Now I just happen to have a piece of fire engine red synthetic in my stash that I was wondering what on earth I'd do with it and why I had it.
I also found just the pattern in my Burda mags. Snip, snip ...watch this space.
