I brought some fabric remnants now just need to decide what to do with them! I have 2 small bits possibly cushions and 5yrds of a lovely cotton fabric that I think is headed towards a dress.
Well last night saw me get behind a sewing machine again for the 1st time in over 10 years. Fun refreshing my memory and practicing the all important straight line and try not to press the peddle to enthusiastically.
I’m determined to get back to dressmaking, it’s such a great skill and one that should probably be taught in schools again!
A little bit of shopping done at Sew Direct. Good offer when you join the club, I got 5 patterns for just over £10. Two of them where Vogue so for those who know patterns that is a saving! I’m no where near ready to make these but soon hopefully!
Patterns are all vintage style 🙂

Here is a picture of the 4 flowers I made at a 2 hour class with the wonderful Claire at Beautiful Things.
We made three with a glue gun and one hand stitched. Great fun and I have gone and got a pile if ribbon to make some as present bows (like the green & pink one). Really enjoyed the class can’t wait to do more 🙂
