I am also feeling pretty chuffed with myself as the lovely Sunni (aka the Cupcake Goddess) featured my blue and white polka dot Rooibos in her stitching spotlights! Thanks Sunni! Then I was looking on the Colette Patterns website, and Sarai has used my Rooibos and my Ceylon in her gallery! Wow, I am feeling very special in all.
I've also done a bunch of sewing this weekend. It was a relatively quiet one (a 30th B'day Party on Sat night, but that's about it). Michael is about to submit his PhD, so it is quiet time here at the ranch.
I finished my Pattern Review Vintage Pattern contest dress. And boy, do I love it. It was not without tears, mostly due to having to take out a whopping 18cm from the waist, and then sewing the back to the front bodice. Ah well, it has been worth it in the end!
Ah, I'm in love with my own sewing skills this week (sorry to be so vain, but it is so nice when it pays off). Because this was for the contest, Michael and I went to some extra effort with the photos. Here are a few detailing my handiwork for the contest:
The neck tie.
The invisible zip.
My lovely enclosed seams.
I will post my other projects over the next few days. I finished my red and black Rooibos dress, and my little niece's 1960s party frock (she is turning 3). Hope all is going well in your parts of the world. xx
