Ok, moving on from my dramatic bushfire experience - here are a few snaps of my latest dress creation. Awkward as ever, I propped up my camera on the ironing board, set the timer, and proceeded to take numerous photos of me pretending to reach for stuff, cut things and try my hardest to look like Zooey Deschanel.
I have been a bit camera shy of late, since I stopped breast feeding my baby I have managed to out-grow all of my clothes. It was hard work finding a few pictures without multiple chins so please be kind... *wink*
The new style features 3/4 length sleeves and an a-line silhouette. It zips up the back with a 20 inch invisible zipper. So neat and tidy! I am going to stick some big pockets on the front. What do you think? I am so pleased with the fit.
FYI - Once again I made this dress by mixing and matching a whole heap of existing pattern pieces and altering them to fit my design. This dress fits me like a glove! I will definitely make more, but it will take some experimenting to make different sizes... If you are a size 10 - 12 then keep an eye on the shop for a few cheeky additions...
Here are a few finer details...
Seriously. I think after all the excitement of last night I just need to relax. So I am taking the rest of the day off.
I hope you are all well and happy and SAFE! Wherever you may be!
