HI Charolette, Hows your dress coming along? Hope to see it soon, I still haven't gotten mine finished.oooooooooh.. I am doing a vintage pattern [which I have never done before] and the shoulders hang off my shoulders, so I have to take the sleeves out and cut it down some more..I hate ,taking stuff a loose,ha.
Cant wait to see your dress.. I have that pattern too. And have been nervous to attempt it.I just got
some fabric for it. So, hopefully will start soon. Of course, depending on what next weeks challenge is and how time consuming it is?? If its somethng I cant do, I will just take the week to work on the crepe dress.ha.
I am fixing to go and rip the sleeves out of my dress [as bad as I dont won't to], and try to fix it, so I can get it posted this week..so..off I go too..NO more excuses.Judy
Thanks Charlotte! Yeah, it's been a pretty bad day for us all over here. Nearly everyone has friends or family in Christchurch, so we're all feeling a bit helpless. :-( Thankfully all my friends and family down there are safe.
It is really wondeful to have such a warm welcome from all you seasoned sewers! I must admit it is all a bit daunting being a beginner, but I love it! Hopefully I won't drive you too insane by asking to many inane questions as I go along!
Wow that was quick! I heard about the meet up – it’s the reason I signed up! I’ve been following the blog but never bothered joining up as I wasn’t really taking part in the challenges. Is there a way of finding UK members? Or did you happen on me by (happy) accident?
Only just realised you could comment on the photos before I'd done the descriptions! Yeah it's an Amy Butler pattern, I've got a slight addiction as am drawn to bright colours and bold prints...it's a weakness I'm trying to get over by buying less of her stuff and branching out to other fabrics. Do you have a favourite fabric designer?
Yes, I've just been reading through the thread. It sounds great but I don't know if I can make it and also not sure if I'd have time to make a dress for it but we'll see. I wouldn't rule it out just yet!
