Speedy Sewing Slipping in for 2017!

Hey Up Friends,

So I’ve been trying to get some making done and dusted before the year winds down.

As part of Dressember (a fundraiser for International Justice Mission and A21 – basically anti-slavery and anti-people trafficking) I was sponsored to make two new dresses. You can see all the details about the dresses on this post.

Vogue 8469

I made this in a crazy patchwork look fabric and paired it with a beautiful shot dupion silk sash. Both fabrics  are second hand.

and my totally TNT pattern The Ruby Dress by Simple Sew

I have lost count of how many of these I have made (this isn’t the only one I haven’t blogged about). I made this out of second had denim I got at the Steiner fair recently. I absolutely love this dress and I’m all kinds of excited about how much fun I will have accessorising it.

I also made to large drawstring bags for my boys to unwrap on Christmas Eve because we had temporarily misplaced our stockings.

Re-sewed several zips.

Made 9 produce bags for my sister for her to use when shopping.

Fixed The Atlas’ jeans

and let out the seams in a dress that I had done the wrong seam allowance on.

So, I felt rather pleased with my speedy sewing in December + I did a full sewing space clear out and organise with my awesome sister and fellow TMS member Naomi.

love you more than mending jobs done xxx
