I finished sewing Astrid’s dress. It’d been loitering around on my shelf for weeks waiting to be hemmed and elastic’d. The fabric is a wool silk cotton blend from Linnet which I really had to stop myself from over-ordering. Still, I don’t regret it. I have enough fabric from last year’s buying rampage to last me a couple of years, and I like the surprise factor of not being able to repeat myself.


Simple dress – pattern from onnanoko no fuku

Also, the inbound taxes on parcels and the exchange rate are really making me think very very carefully before buying too much from overseas.
