We moved in here about 1.5 weeks ago and it has been a whirlwind of unpacking, doing various handyman chores and settling in. It might sound like I haven't done any sewing, but in fact I have done a lot. I've made a party dress for the NZ wedding, Little M's party dress, another dress for Little M, a skirt, a Lily Linen dress and I've fixed a silk Gabby dress that I used the marked side of the fabric mistakenly with. I also attended a Freddie vest class.
Perhaps most significantly, I sewed an entire garment made of Liberty of London fabric for the first time:
I bought this off Shaukat, the UK website that sells Liberty fabric for around AU$20. I absolutely fell in love with the print - and the colours are amazing. And go perfectly with my new Saltwater Sandals. I love this one - it is sooooo nice to wear.
I didn't want to mess with the print too much so I decided to make another Gabby dress. Yes, I am now stepping away from the pattern. I am spreading my wings.
I don't have much to say about the pattern given I've made it 3 times before (the silk version still needs to be photographed). I made a size small with no alterations bar lengthening it by 5cm.
I'm hoping to get some photos soon of one of my other projects. I do go to NZ for work in just over a week though so lets how things go!
And I really want to meet up again - how is everyone positioned for the second week in November?
