Last week I had a big interview for a PHD studentship, my mind was elsewhere. I turned to my friends for ideas and, as ever, they didn’t fail me – 2 brilliant ideas in a week. Christy (who also dug the hole for me to bury it) suggested that I should make a Time Capsule. Wonderful. Then Mini (who once taught me to cook) suggested T could be for Tailoring – I could make an item of clothing! Glorious.
As we are now into week U, and I have even more exciting things planned, this will only be a short post – mostly pictures of the dress I made.
This dress was designed by the multi-talented Rachael and can be found at her lovely blog ‘Talk2TheTrees’ here. The instructions were really very easy to follow and, putting it together on the sewing machine, it took me only 45 minutes. Here are the results:
I’m really pleased with it – an effective simple way of using the lengths of fabric I have sitting in my cupboard. I’ve already got my next one planned!
