Big Sis loved this hand me down dress but it had a tulip bottom with an under frill which she loathed so I cut it off and hemmed it up normally around August time.
I am revisiting this blouse which did not get an airing this summer because it was too tight across my hips and a bit too long in the body for me. I removed the gathered hem from here too. Also my right bicep is larger than my left one (apparently) so I am taking off the arm bindings and making them bigger. Then I got bored and stuffed it all back in the sewing drawer under the bed, this was in early September.
I have bits of Liberty Tana Lawn Florenece to use up so I dived into the sewing drawer remembering my summer hack jobs. I had saved the frills, I remember those, there were some other bits of fat quarters lurking around too. Too much itty-bitty stuff for my liking, cluttering my sewing space...
What happens if you switch your mind off from work, family, housework and stress and sew them all together for an hour?
You get a pretty skirt for a 7 year old that looks soooo expensive..
She wore it with her T-shirt hanging out but I made her tuck it in for a picture so that you could see. I left it out on her bed and she changed into it as soon as she got in from school yesterday.
Happy, happy, happy.
I tell you what, it is getting harder by the day to photograph things in this autumn light and the clocks haven't even changed yet.
Thanks for looking, be creative. Jo xxxxxxx
