And I’m back

Well its been awhile but I have returned to blog land. We still don’t have the internet but I do have a sewing room, which has been getting a work out. I have sewn a small bag and two dresses in my time away and then stained one of them, such a shame.
 I am currently working on simplicity 2257 view D, I found the most beautiful silk satin from spotlight of all places! I think it will suit the autumn – winter period but has to be lined as its sheer. I am working on it very slowly as it was $30 per metre and I needed 3 metres. I know it doesn’t make it the world’s most expensive fabric but it matters to me. Just for curiosity sakes how much have you spent on per metre of fabric?
I am also working on another simplicity summer dress, its not summer anymore but theses days you can put layers on so it doesn’t matter.
We have been invited to a wedding in October this year and I have found a really good excuse to make a dress I’ve been wanting to make for a while so I’m going to start it around May and use my cobalt silk dupion, to make a baby doll style dress. I’m really excited to be making a dress like this as I had one a few years ago that was damaged after being dry cleaned, so we’ll see how it gets off the ground.  

I have decided to have a giveaway, it will start of Thursday and will be drawn Monday next week, all you have to do is follow or and subscribe, just leave a comment, when I do announce what it is, but there will be fabric from tessuti’s included.

Thanks for reading,
