Time for some new threads

The sun is SHINING and it's making me think of SUMMER and all the nice DRESSES I want to wear but sadly cannot AFFORD.

Time to bust out the old sewing machine and whip up a dress or two! I've been looking at these Vintage Vogue patterns for a while and I think I am sold on the floral one with the tie back (last pic) and am looking forward to sharpening up my dressmaking skills. Sadly there cannot be any materials purchased around hear until payday. This will give me plenty of time to cruise some fabric shops and get my ideas together.

I'll post my progress at each stage of the project just in case I learn anything useful along the way that's worth sharing.

Also, if making clothes is up your street but maybe you don't want to take on a srs bsnz dress pattern like these, take some time and browse Burda Style. This is an online sewing community type place where you can download (mostly for free) other users patterns or submit your own. It's good to be able to see the clothes on real people to help visualise how your finished product it gonna turn out in the for real. Also plenty of tutorials etc.

Enjoy the sunshine!
