How does time pass so quickly, I thought it was a while since I blogged but over 2 months …… but I have been sewing.
I also bought this fabric in a small fabric shop in the town of Ryde, on on the Isle of Wight to make it with. Its a crepe de chine at £3 a metre.
I made view A. The pattern envelope describes this a a 2 hour dress, and yes it could have been if I hadn’t had so much trouble trying to sew the bodice to the skirt, where skirt goes to a point. It languished in the corner of my sewing room (where I threw it) for a few weeks. Until I picked up and tried again. I will make it again in a smaller size and in a nice cotton.
PS I still haven’t hemmed it yet!
