Whipped up another t-shirt today - only took an hour, including mess-ups! It is much clingier than my black flowery one so not sure how often it'll get worn. The fabric is one I bought on eBay, thinking the bows would be small- ermmmm, maybe not so small!!
Whipped up a top today from some stretch fabric I've had lying around for ages. Made from a free pattern here at MariaDenmark . It's turned out really nice actually!! Will definitely make another in a different fabric and see if I can do it in less than 90 minutes this time! Wore it straight away and am really pleased with it!
I made this dress for me to wear to Isla's funeral. It was great fun to make and I really took my time and followed every single instruction to the letter - oh, except the zip, which I did the only way I know how! Oh, and the hem, which, I'm sorry, I'm not French seaming and hand sewing! I did, however, press every seam the right way and try it on frequently to check it was fitting! I'm so proud of it! It's a Project Runway design (2588), where you have the basic dress shape (either slim or flared skirt) and then can choose a yoke or neckline and 'designer additions' - I chose the bow of course! Definitely going to be making another in a different style soon! It was a beautiful flowery fabric for Isla's funeral - nice and bright to match the meadow she is laid to rest in. What do you think?!
Seeing those photos makes we want to wear it today! I love it!!
And when I do wear it, I can think of Isla and how beautiful she was too!
