So its finally the end of the week! Woo hoo
In exciting sewing news...
Mr. Lovely is taking me shopping for a new dress form tomorrow. Gosh, could he get any better!
He spotted a 60's model made entirely of wood and in good nick, we shall go hunt it down tomorrow...
Days 8 & 9 are a little more exciting than the past few days because we had dinner dates both nights.
On day 8 we went out with our fellow classmates for a spot of thai and some vino.
The curry and conversation were good, but the walk home in the rain... not so good...
Mr. Lovely took a snap after the downpour
|I wore my red Macaron dress, so comfy...|
I have made this before but the colour was too..... eh...something. Not quite right.
This version is in purple and grey tartan & is coming together nicely.
In this photo you can also spot:
a) a bike
b) a rack piled full of finished and unfinished sewing pieces
c) my poor used and abused dress form
d) a myriad of other mess...
On day 9 we planned to go out for dinner but plans fell through and we ended up relaxing with some friends, ordering pizza & pasta and watching 'Dumb & Dumber' (Yes it's still funny).
So I opted for comfort.
|This is just how I hang out on the doorstep....|
This is a Cynthia Rowley for Simplicity pattern, and is good if you are feasting, Lots of room haha
And a flattering waistline.
So thats all in sewing news.... for now....
Thanks for all the lovely comments and encouragement,
Self Stitched September has been tougher than first thought, I'm just not organised enough!
But it is fun all the same.
How are the other SSS participants keeping up?
Good luck & See you in the soup...
