So I am back from a great trip to California and somewhat embarrassed to report here that I did not even step into a fabric store! But I did get 6 rolls of tracing paper so that should keep me going for a bit.
I did manage to knock out a couple of quick items before I went on holiday - both are duplicates of items I have made recently so were fast and easy.
Patrones Shirt Issue 269 #1 from a taupe/cream embroidered voile (click to enlarge)
BWOF Skirt 09/08-120 from a black cotton with an embroidered border (no hemming required!).
I thought HK would have cooled down a bit by the time I returned but it's still really hot and I am ready to move on from summer clothes onto a new project that I can really get my teeth into. I thought about the PR wardrobe contest, but having bought lots of dress patterns recently I have decided to attempt to use every single one of them (6 in total). More on the Mad Dress Project in the next post.
Finally a huge thank you to Trudy for giving me a Kreative Blogger award. If you haven't already, check out her blog and see if any of the other award winners are new blogs to you as I discovered a couple of new ones there.
Oh dear, the postman just came...make that 7 dresses in the Mad Dress Project!
