Happy Easter my, one and only reader?!
So I made a dress,
I mean that is the purpose of this blog!
I started Friday, picked Brooke up from the airport (LATE) at 9-45PM Friday night;
We had catch ups and fired up the Gossip Girl;
So I was in and out, trimming seams, sewing things...
Brooke fell asleep to GG and my sewing machine.
So I got 4 hours sleep.
and worked on it yesty in bits and pieces!
Wish I took some on going photos, however.
So things I have learnt:
ALWAYS PRE-WASH OR STEAM YOUR FABRIC BEFORE YOU CUT IT OUT!
I had a little, waistband being 3cm too short incident.
I was saved by a piece of ribbon.
ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOUR PATTERN FITS YOUR ZIP!
As compared to the bustier I made; I didn't have to adjust this one and it was HEAVEN!
Upside down zip makes a fantastic split!
ALWAYS MAKE A TOILE.
So the event the dress was for was a party a friend of Brooke's was putting on at Tea Tree Gully
($50 cab fare later... ugh)
Inspiration? Well, my bustier and the wonderful gold tinged black cotton voile I had as table clothes @ my Mums surprise 50th (BEAUTIFUL fabric and I just had to share it, so I had to cut my pattern pieces between pieces of candle wax...)
But worth it.
It makes for an interesting story.
I haven't raided Brooke's camera yet but the outfit:
THE DRESS, green nails, black tights, black see-thru striped under-tee (it was cold, yo!), Beige glomesh purse with a big black satin bow (my favourite < 3) and a packet of vogues.
So here I am, Easter Sunday, no idea what the time is supposed to be.
And feeling quite seedy.
With Hot Cross Buns and a really fantastic BFF;
