Oh boy, I’ve not been good at updating, have I? 1 000 apologies. I even missed a milestone! This little blog was one whole year old on the 27th June! I missed it. 😦
So here’s what I’m working on for Daughter No2 at the moment. It’s not a pincushion, or a totebag. It’s a dress! YAY! We’d seen this dress on Modcloth over a year ago, and liked the panels on the bodice, so we pinned it for future reference. I managed finally to get the pattern cut last weekend, and got to make the toiles this weekend!
Here’s what the bodice section looks like in a plain fabric:
And here’s the nice stuff all cut out and ready for tailor tacking! I really hope to get it made up tomorrow, so fingers crossed there are no visitors! 😀 The fabric is a John Kaldor stretch cotton sateen print in red and white that I bought in Derby from Tatler Fabrics. I only had 1.5m, so the skirt on this dress will just be a simple A-line, rather than anything fuller. But I have a feeling I might be making more than one version of this, so stick around to see variations on the skirt.
And a close-up of all those bodice panel pieces….
So I’ll see you tomorrow with the finished garment and someone with a biiig grin on her face! Let’s just hope it isn’t raining for the photos..
