I did…i said i was making a dress for a wedding out of a heinously bright fabric……4 metres of the stuff! It all went well except for the stain that appeared in a prominent area……the fact i didnt have enougj fabric and had to cut the skirt narrower- a good thong as it is VAST……the zip that was too short but fits ok anyway and the total trauma……badly matched seams. In good news, the lining worked ok and the dress is fab..i’m wearing it to another wedding this weekend……


Check out the folds in the skirt lo lose some fullness….skirt is still huge!


Cutting out the lining


Look at the pretty lining and zip…


And the distinctly unpretty seams 😦


Hanging around…


Me rocking out with a cup of tea….
