Recent made dress

It's a quick post tonight because I'm shattered.

I made this dress after much deliberation for a special occasion at work.

I made 3 toiles for the bodice before I settled on a good fit! I wanted to get this one perfect as I was using expensive 100% wool suiting fabric that I had in my stash.

I'm soo pleased with this dress just need to loose a little tum to be 100% happy with it!!

Btw I'm the one with long hair.

Small catch up

Ok Iv not managed to get my laptop totally working yet so I can only post the odd bits from my iPod.

This was the first full item I made in the new flat. I fell in love the single girl quilt and decided to try one block first to see if I was able to do it.

It was perfect for this, Iv had the wooden bar for 2 years and Iv never worked out what to do with it. Very fitting and works perfectly with this single girl in the entrance of my new flat.

To follow soon, recent clothes Iv made (and in the process of making) recent quilts n sewing projects Iv mastered. And photos of the flat.

Hope you are all well and glad to see me again.
