So, sew!

Hello me's it going?

Did you have a wonderful Easter? I sure did. I spent most of the four day break SEWING! It was absolutely wonderful and I got heaps done.

A few days before Easter I paid a little visit to Rathdowne Remnants in Brunswick. I mentioned it here in an earlier post...anyway while I was there wandering around, I spied this beauty.

It's a natural linen with a silver metallic thread woven through it...Beautiful!

...and the pattern? I bought it online and I have to admit, it is one of the simplest dresses I have ever made.

Here's the (almost) finished product. It needs the hem done and desperately needs an iron, but will look fab once it's completed. I'm so pleased with the way it turned out... so pleased in fact that I made a white version...I'll show you that tomorrow.

By the way, thank you for all your lovely comments regarding my award and the uh umm "seven interesting things about me"...yeah well, not sure about them being interesting or not, but hey, it's a way of us all getting to know each other a little better right?
