I have felt like a human machine this past week. Pumping out around 10 dresses, 4 of which were Bridesmaid's dresses and one a Bride's going away dress. After finishing this mammoth effort I collapsed in a heap yesterday afternoon and spent the evening in bed drinking wine, eating cheese and watching Winona movies... possibly the best ever remedy for exhaustion/the blues/cramps/Melbourne heat waves.
I have 10 more dresses to sew then I am going to get started on some very special one of a kind numbers. I've been saving a big stash of fabric that will be perfect 1960s party dresses. I am so excited to bring these babies to life!
Also I wanted to mention the intense love I feel for the cardigan i'm wearing in these pictures. Affectionately known as Alpine this darling once belonged to my great Aunt and was on it's way out when she passed away 4 years ago. I rescued it from the throw out pile and have been wearing it religiously ever since. It is my very favourite cardigan to wear whilst sewing and my other half ensures me it will be perfect for wearing in the snow, maybe not so much for its warmth but definitely for its 1970s ski lodge vibes.
For anyone that hasn't entered the Kitten Dress Giveaway get in quick as today is your last chance. The competition ends tonight and I will be announcing this winner first thing tomorrow, woot!
