So I thought I'd share with you what I'm currently hankering to finish off and show you (I really really really wanted to wear it today to work, but it's been a tough tiring week, goddam full time work/job that has nothing to do with sewing and ALL to do with tough work in a fun way) (OMG I'm really teddy tired, aren't I?)
I just zoomed in on this darling pattern from 'Amanda's Vintage Pattern Challenge' (ie my current project of sewing darlings - penpal Amanda has sent a few samples from her collection to me, to sew and review etc) because how cute is the collar? BUT I'd like you to note the skirt part of the dress. I grabbed this pattern quickly on Sunday (before the music festival) because I thought the weather called for something light. I used some yellow tablecloth material (as posted yesterday) but redesigned the skirt bit.
Yep, I think I'm becoming one of 'those' seamstresses. I find a part of the pattern I like, I cut up that bit. THEN I MAKE UP THE REST. *gulp*
So *technically* this yellow tablecloth dress won't be *exactly* the same as the above pattern... but aren't you intrigued about how I have made it?
What a mystery!
