This was totally supposed to be posted yesterday but I got somewhat waylaid… by sewing no less!
Since I finished the Sewing for Beginners class at Bristol’s Folk House in March, I don’t feel like I’ve done much sewing, hence the Sewing Saturday hiatus, but actually I did a couple of bits.
I made this as a gift to my Mom for Mother’s Day, with this pretty flowery cotton and a waterproof lining inside the zippered pocket. Sadly, I made this in sewing class from a pattern the teacher Karen had so I’m not sure which one it is. Once I find out, I shall update this post.
New Look 6968 – Misses’ Dress | ~£6 | View A
My first dress! I had a few different fabrics in my stash to choose from after a trip to London’s Goldhawk Road but as it is my first project, and will potentially be susceptible to mistakes, I opted for some cheaper cotton. This spotty green caught my eye and was a good price at ~£4/metre. I started cutting everything out on Tuesday and after around 8 hours of sewing yesterday I’m probably about 50% of the way through. Cannot wait to finish! Watch this space for a completed post.
