Last night after the girls were in bed I made my self a dress.
I have never completed and worn a piece of clothing for myself so I had no expectations.
I chose a sheet I wasn't particularly attatched to. And then I did my usual trick of drawing the pattern on the sheet, cutting it out, sewing it together and binding it.
It is a bit too tight across the chest and a bit too loose across the tummy but hey I'm used to making kids clothes and they don't have boobs or hips or tummies.
I will have another go today and make a pattern that has a bit more shape to it. I know I could buy a pattern, but I think I am too much of an impatient sewer. I take all the shortcuts and make it up as I go along.
In the meantime we have used up all our fast internet downloading Entourage episodes, so I might not have the patience to spend much time online for the next ten days. And when I say slow, I mean slow, our snow peas are growing faster than pages are loading.
I hope you have a great weekend. XX
