Moving House

Yeah it's another Laurel dress...but you don't need much fabric so I could make a whole dress from some Cath Kidston cotton duck and then call it a marvellous bargain. This counts as a September make but it's nice for autumn now too as the fabric is thicker and so feels nice with tights. Which is just as well as it's getting for some wintry makes!

On The Buses

It's been a while.

My seamstress adventures have been curtailed by moving houses and cities- and not least by currently being without a sewing machine. I feel a bit bereft.

Just as well I made myself this cheery skirt one weekend then....thanks to a half-metre of Cath Kidston cotton duck. I think it's furnishing fabric but it sews up lovely. It lends itself to a simple elastic-waisted skirt as it hangs nicely....and it makes me feel happy, which is the main thing.
