Mid Project in the middle of the week

Hello hello! Just a quick post to let you know what I'm currently working away on cause there's been a lot of sewing going on here and therefore not a lot of blogging or answering emails... sorry about that! 

It's a bit hard to get a good balance going on. The more I sew the less I blog/comment but in turn, you get to see more new things more often! 

Anyway... so this is the lil darlin of a pattern I'm working on - specifically view B


The front of this dress is 1 whole piece which requires origami like folding to make it look like two pieces of fabric. Such an ordeal but it looks pretty good when finished

This is the piece below with the facings. There is like 9 steps to get that placket to close over. 

Best not to try this part at 11pm at night like I did...  


what is this even??? 

This weekend past was a long weekend. The boy and I spent Sunday ferry hopping around Sydney Harbour, visiting Cockatoo Island and then Watsons Bay and The Gap bluff. It was a gorgeously hot day and we didn't go to the right restaurant for lunch but it was a big and fun day

I also found out I'm going to be a bridesmaid at my friends wedding and she's letting me make the skirt portion of my outfit and maybe the flower girls dress. Fun!

And I'm already getting invites for Christmas parties later on in December (Cuba & White Christmas so far) so I'm going to have a bunch of fun outfits to sew up soon! 

So yay for sewing right? I'm gonna attempt shorts soon! They'll just be a muslin so I'm ok if they don't work, but how awesome would it be if they did? Oh one can dream!

Lots of love to you!

  3. Sounds tricky! I love the fabric that you've chosen. It almost looks exactly like the one from the picture of the girl on the pattern!
    The Sydney Harbour must be so beautiful this time of year, I've only ever gone in the colder months. And what an exciting time for you!

    1. Yeah! I was so happy to find that fabric. I knew exactly what I had to use it for when I bought it. But silly me I only just bought enough fabric, so no left overs!
      And yes Sydney is always lovely! Except for the crowds and tourist. Grrr

    1. I know! That's like two in a row now! I like this idea of matching, but I also like being completely random with my choices as well

    1. Yes! This is a good busy! Earlier this year it was bad busy and very stressful, but I have clocked up many hours behind the machine lately. I could have driven at Le Mans!
