I have just had a photo shoot with my daughter in order to show off my first ever attempt at dress making. I went to a workshop in Belfast on Saturday with the intention of making an A line skirt, but made a pencil skirt instead.
I spent a long time in the fabric shop trying to decide on a suitable fabric and ended up buying patchwork cotton.
This was a bad choice, because it creases so easily. Doesn't it look crumpled in the photo?
It had been ironed just before I put it on.
I do love the colour though, and think it's a pretty summer skirt.
Look what came in the post yesterday. Ebay is wonderful.
I looked at the pattern when It came and got a bit scared.
But I will give it a go.
All by myself with no help.!!
And here is the progress I have made with my Beth quilt.
Not much, but then there's no rush.
I really love the pinwheel design in the middle created by the four blocks.
.....going to do a bit more now, whilst the wind blows a gale outside.
