I am missing sewing, but everything is packed up now so I have been trying to keep up with all your blogs instead - it gives me my sewing fix even though I have not had much time to add any intelligent (or unintelligent, like usual, for that matter) comments. I'll be in the serviced apartments for 2-3 months while the new place is being renovated and I am taking some sewing stuff with me. It was hard deciding what to take, in the end I've packed my machine, serger, a selection of summery fabrics, this years BWOF's and essential notions - we'll see how I do.
Scarily small pile
Anyway you don't want to hear all that, you want to see a dress right?
Close up of the hem treatment.
This took ages just pinning everything on the dressform and then stitching the pleats in place. I experimented with gathering, like the childrens dresses but the effect was too girly, I am happy with how it turned out.
Now I just have to make sure that 2 weeks staying with my dad and his cheese toastie maker won't make the dress magically shrink!
