Yesterday the "bug" bit me again. After having promised myself not to sew after work, i decided I wanted a new maxi dress. This time I made sure I chose a simple and fast project. I love sewing yes, but waking up like a zombie in the morning is not my cup of tea. I wanted a maxi dress with sleeves, but I did not have any patterns at home that could help me. So I decided to use the top half of my new look 6816 pattern, as the top of the dress, and then use a rectangle for the rest of the dress.
Last weekend, on coming back from my sister's place, I decided to stop by goldhawk road, not to buy fabric, but to check out what lycra they had for swimming suits. I came out with so much fabric I had to hide them in the back garden before going through the front door, so my husband would not know I had fallen prey to the fabric buying sickness again.
One of the things I bought was this jersey fabric. I got 2.5 metres for £7. I used about 1.5 metres, so I still have some leftovers, which will should come in handy for another project. All in all, I spent about 2 hours from cutting to finishing. Not bad aye?
I decided to tie another headtie because my hair is horrible. I think I need to do my hair this weekend.
|Porridge time yay!!!|
Have a cracking weekend everyone.
