Well Saturday seems to be my sewing day. We had a busy morning this morning, we took Ellyse to her first ever swimming lesson, then to the library, followed by a spot of shopping. After lunch I did a quick whizz around the house tidying up a little so I could sew when Ellyse went to sleep.
I attempted one of ANGEL's 'springy dresses'. The shirring was sooooo easy I was surprised. I haven't perfected the straps yet, but it is pretty much complete. Ellyse was very sick of trying it on so I had to stop! It is very light material and hangs a little funny around her middle, not particularly flattering! Very cute though, I am sure she will get lots of wear out of it.
I am not very quick yet, the dress probably took me about 2 hours, maybe a little more. I did waste a lot of time deciding on measurements and marking out for shirring, which I didn't even use. Next time will be much faster!
DVD and munchies on the couch tonight...nice...I would still like to be sewing though but not sure Keiran would like that!
I just thought I would add a picture of last Saturday's sewing all finished. I was going to add some more hot pink around the bottom of the skirt, and I still might, but for now I am happy with the way it is. She wore it to the shops today, I was very proud, although you couldn't really see it as she was sitting in the pram!
