I’ll keep this brief. Have a look at my blog for all the juicy details (actually there really aren’t any but don’t let that stop you visiting my blog).
First I made the cream, pink and brown dress out of a silk rayon fabric I bought at the fabric warehouse sale for $5 per meter. It’s from a Burdastyle pattern. It’s going to be a very useful dress for work. There were some issues with excessive sleeve hugeness at first but you can read all about that on my blog
Next up I auditioned McCall’s M6696 in a seersucker cotton from my stash. When I spotted this pattern I thought it would be a dress I’ll probably make many times. With a straight skirt variation and either short or long sleeves there are a lot of possibilities and it think it’ll make a great wardrobe builder with just a couple of minor fitting adjustments
I’m so inspired by all the beautiful Froctober dresses everyone is making, so many patterns have been added to my wish list. I think I’ve got at least one more dress in me before the month is over… Hopefully I’ll get it made this long weekend – who needs sleep when you could be sewing!
