My dress is finally finished


Yes , Mum took pity on me & finally finished the zip. It’s been quite a while that Betty has been wearing it & I have been taking photos of shawls draped around her.  I’m not even sure where the pattern is??  Tomorrow I think I will wear it to school.

An adventure in sewing


This morning I managed to draft my very own skirt sloper grow scratch. I’m really pleased with it. 

Let me now introduce you to ‘Betty’ my new dress form. I thought I would start with making the skirt to fit her, as I could then use this as a cover before I start to pad her out. 

All I need to do now is slip stitch the seam to finish off. 

I’m sure ‘Betty’ is really pleased she has clothes!

One more week until the school holidays. Next dress making project will be the top. I’ve watched that class it does not look that easy.  I’m off to watch more craftsy, oh & mark some physics books for the last time this year.
