After a tedious week or so ( my husband's practice is moving soon and guess who is "helping"), I was in need of some light relief today. I have done some sewing, and do have a few plans to make some basics for winter, but I needed something a little more interesting to look forward to. Or at least something not "planned and useful". So I thought today would be a good day to play the game...
Out with the pot:
Close eyes (with one open for the camera shot) , rummage and take out a slip:
What do we have: Vogue 1316, in the Designer patterns (that is what the D is for).
And when I go and find the pattern, this is what I have "pulled out".
A Rachel Comey design, now OOP. Funnily enough, it was on my list to make for winter this year - to wear over a jumper, not as a low neck dress. More as a pinafore dress. In fact, I had already stashed for it - when Spotlight had a range of colours all in the store at once that would work and suit me. A very rare occurence, so I stashed it straight away (even though I had taken my stashbusting pledge, but there are exceptional circumstances sometimes. An as luck would have it, I am going to use it soon, so I think I haven't really done too much damage to the pledge).
These pieces are all the same type and weight of fabric - a polyester/viscose mix gabardine. I will have some black lining in the stash, so this project is meant to be :)
