Things are a bit of a blur at the moment - life is moving fast...I mean it's the middle of September already! Unfortunately this has had an effect on my lofty sewing ambitions - nothing has been achieved in the last week or so except buying more fabric and adding new things to my MUST DO list.
I saw this version of AMH's socialite dress
and decided there and then not just to make one for myself (obviously I'll wear mine with a cardigan) but to make one for the luscious Mrs R's birthday. Fortunately I managed to find the material (AMH's drwaing room) at a great price and bought a heap of it. I also decided that since I've never even contemplated such a feat, that I should make the dress in muslin first to check I can actually do it before cutting up the fabric. I'm getting sensible in my waning years :-). I'm hoping that making this dress will give me legs like this! Fingers crossed x
