I found an old beach wrap square of fabric, unused for 30 years, so decided to try out my dressmaking skills (or lack of) before the "real" fabric arrives.
Most of the day was spent measuring, pinning, cutting out, deciphering the instructions and then sewing.
Hmmm.. The result was a bit wonky. Must try harder.
At least you weren't bored and you passed a few hours doing something practical. Well done.ReplyDelete
Thanks northsider. Although it didn't turn out that well, I quite enjoyed having a go. It took most of the day too 😉Delete
Well that's Wednesday done and dusted. Waiting with baited breath to see how Thursday goes!ReplyDelete
Hope it's more interesting than ours
I wouldn't bet on it Linda!Delete
No photos? Surely we, your adoring public, should have the opportunity to observe the results of your patient labour. Let's just think of it as practice run but when you get cracking with the ordered fabric please show us pictures - maybe from the beginning.ReplyDelete
I am not sure that anyone would be really interested!Delete
I would be and Dave Northsider who spends many a winter's night hunched over his old "Singer".Delete
A very handy skill to have. My sewing machine has long since gone to the dump.ReplyDelete
I don't think I have enough patience to make a success of it so have ordered some bargain price fabric to try it out first. At least it used up a whole day!Delete
One of the good .... ish things to come out of this world we are now living in is how we are all trying new things, or things we tried to do years ago and then put away !!! Time to tune into The Great British Sewing Bee ? XXXXReplyDelete
Yes, it sounds good and I gather it is very popular. I shall see how I get on with it using subtitles :)Delete
It’s gentle, inoffensive and lovely ...... you will soon be making things à la Zandra Rhodes 🤣 XXXXDelete
Not if today's effort is anything to go by! I need a Plan B.Delete
