Oh no, I fear I'm dripping with sarcasm here already, and I haven't even started yet! I better just go straight to the photos, so I can distract my hungover and boring brain!
So here's my current pattern, from the lovely Amanda (who kindly sent me a few of her patterns to try out! The Dearheart is extremely busy planning a wedding and caring for people, so no time to indulge!) and it's Vogue 5900, and looks rather maternal to me! I've just got to do a few things on it, but thought I'd post this for a Work In Progress (WIP) for you to have a geek at. The material is from the stash, but I got it in Spotlight on spesh (can't remember the exact price) and it's a very light, almost see through cotton lawn. I have used some of it before, before I started this blog maybe (as I can't find a post about it) but it was a shirt thing that was a bit too puffy for me so it went to the Op Shop.
I've changed a couple things so far, I didn't want to do lining/facing as this cotton is so lovely and soft, I want to make it for a preggers gal, who needs her clothing nice and light. It's hot here in Syds, so if you're pregs in summertime you want light material. So instead I remembered how I'd use bias binding for the edges when I make tshirt dresses, and rather than folding it under and topstitching it, I thought I'd just leave it and iron it out. Looks nice for the edging!
I'm making the white dress, from the pattern front above, but with no sleeves. But I did decide to keep the pocket in so I hope it still looks good!
And once of the best things I've learned recently is to do the facing thing (where you put a bit of fabric right side to right side, sew a long V shape, slash down the middle, and turn) and I really like using it now instead of bias binding edges on the slash. It is less material and I've found (especially in that little girl's dress I made recently) it gets bulky when I do it.
Oh! And I just clicked over that post and remembered that Sew I Thought gave me a nice nod with a Kreativ Blogger Award, sorry darling! I did receive one of those just recently, and so won't post it again, but here are my results! Thank you kindly though, you're a total babe!
Phew! I totally got through the post without any stupid hangover talk! I tell you, I can get really boring and sarcastic whilst in this state, so am very pleased with my silly self for just writing NORMALLY. ERK!
See you soon, Veronica
