Good morning Sunshines!
It's Tuesday and I have the day off from work. Just about to go to the Big Mill Markets in town and see if i can find some new old patterns! And get stuck into a day of sewing. I have already cut out 2 skirts!
I have been digging around some old pictures and thought I would share some of my older projects... If you care to take a look....
First is Advance 8047, Which I had serious pattern lust after seeing kamikat's version on the Fedora Lounge. So I snapped it up straight away!
This is one of the first dress patterns that I ever tried. I didn't make a muslin (I rarely do unless it is a pattern that I have drafted myself). I had only made skirts and singlets before and this seemed to be hard to follow, at first, with the vintage instructions that were half worn off! I used a bengaline suiting that hangs quite nicely but it also "lightish" to wear in the summer. It came in a rainbow of colours and I got some in red also. (To make the Colette "ceylon" dress coming up later in this post).
It seemed to come together and was finished within 2 days. I love the neckline and the colour and it fits perfectly which was lucky... although next time I will make it a more pencil skirt, its quite straight.
I'm hoping to make another version soon as I have been staring at this one for almost a year! eek.
Secondly, Some of my Colette dresses.
2 "Macaron's" (I have plans for more!) and A "Ceylon". I get a lot of wear out of the first two but the Ceylon is yet to see daylight, It is not as flattering on me as the others.
So have a nice Tuesday peoples and I will show you some goodies later if I find some....
