I’ve been so busy recently that I just haven’t had the time or the inclination to blog…
I am loving the sewing class that I am taking! Whilst initially I was a little disparaging about it, being mostly self taught I thought the first few lessons were basic. However, I take it ALL back – what I am definitely taking away is having more patience and learning to do things the right way.
I am working on Colette Pattern’s Ceylon – I’ve sewn up my toile and had a couple of fittings in it. And now I am ready to cut it out – but I am not sure I have enough fabric (oh dear! Guess that’s the problem with vintage finds!)
I’ve taken the pleats out of the back because it was unflattering on me. I am taking out some of the fullness at the sides and shortening the dress as well…. And I am thinking of being very naughty when it comes to the button holes… Full details to follow!
