I am about to embark on a dress of whimsy, a floaty, hopefully lovely creation for my daughter to wear to a formal Christmas party. This will invlove a full length muslin, lined, with invisible zip ectetera. If both dresses turn out she will have two party creations, one in block colours, one in a casual print. As my pragmatic darling puts it she will 'score well'.
In the meantime I made myself a quick knit dress from M 6069. I'd eagerly waited for a chance to make this pattern. There is a long list of sewers looking fabulous in their creations on Pattern Review. Well I made it and was disappointed. The dress looks ok. Fine even. Just not the 'wow' effect it has had on so many others. It makes me look - well- ah- straight up and down. It seems to work better on hourglasses or pears - people with a well defined waist. Oh well.
Off to sew the next project.
Happy sewing everyone.
ps. I came back to edit this and say it's growing on me.
