The Sew Weekly Sewing Circle

Here's me, just before setting off for the UK Swap Meet. It's very early in the morning, hence the long shadow and squinty eyes. My mum actually took this photo, so that's appropriate. She's always been very artistic and paints in a colourful, lively, exuberent way and this fabric reminds me of her. The style, which is a Colette Crepe, is also very reminiscent of the 50's which was her era. So, I married the two together. It also fits in with the red, white and blue Swap Meet theme and I made it in readiness for that. I won't be ducking out of this coming week though. I'm really impressed with the Crepe pattern and will be making it up again in another red, white and blue floral fabric - which I originally bought for 'Colette' week but my pattern hadn't arrived in time.

I love this dress and your fabric choice. It's so cheerful and summery especially with your red shoes, I love your blazer you made as well. You look so sharp! So very well done!

Very pretty! Great take on your mom's beauty pageant dress.


We may end up looking like twins. I'm currently working on a crepe in a red, white and blue floral fabric. Great minds think alike, right? :)

Thanks!  Yesterday was great, surreal in a way - all these lovely people I'd only ever met on a screen!
