And she sewed



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.

    Yep…I’d wear that too with my new brown Monsoon boots. You are just too clever, what with knitting and sewing. How’s the blush pear tree going?

    Beautiful fabric! Yeh it’s the same online – no order – story here, the NZ dollar is even lower against the US…

    This dress is so beautiful. Is there anywhere in the UK that sells nice sewing patterns like that? I simply can’t figure my japanese ones out.
