I have been sewing but the weather has turned cold, wet and miserable, so I haven't managed a photo-shoot with my latest dress. McCalls 6069. This dress has been very popular in sewing blog land and I can see why. I used this Pucci-bright fabric I showed earlier when I asked if I could wear it and what to make of it.
I will review this pattern fully when I manage to get a photo on me (I haven't even tried it on since I finished as it is too cold!)
Now you can take your sunglasses off for this next dress. It is the dress from Burda 7580. The fabric is the most gorgeous soft rayon jersey. I probably should have pressed it before taking this photo...
I am also wondering if I should have hand stitched the hem instead of using a twin needle. It seems to have tunneled more than I realised when I was sewing it.
I am using the other side of the fabric for the jacket and it has a graphic pattern on it so it will spice up the look of it. Again, once the jacket is finished and I can get photos I will review this fully.
Even though the weather has turned foul, we went to the local Flower festival yesterday and enjoyed the Food & Wine tent, sampling lots of delicious local produce. I meant to get a picture of the food, but forgot until the plates were empty. However I can show a photo of the roses my DH bought me there. Aren't they gorgeous?
