I have been working on The Whirlwinds summer wardrobe!
Pleated tunic dress....Heidi and Finn pattern
Daddy's old work shirt revamped..... (tutorial here)
I made this one up as i went along, but its basically an adaption of a pillowcase dress.
This one is my favourite.....I had fun with the trimmings.
......It look me a while to get the technique right, but now i think that i have mastered it, i am going to be smocking/ shirring everything in sight!
I have also been working on a few sun hats, so they will be up for show next time.
I had a lovely visit from some old work friends this week, one of them now lives back in the U.S. and was over here on holiday, I cheekily asked her if she would bring me some fabric as it is a fraction of the price there that it is here. She bought me a lovely selection of Amy Butler, perfect for more dresses! ( 8yrds cost me just under £50...would have cost me at least £80 in John Lewis here!!!!)
Can you believe i never realised that she has been living 2 minutes from L.A's fabric district for the last 3yrs!...Well i know now and will be making regular orders!
I have a busy week ahead with lots more visits planned. Only 3 wks till the big move, so I am planning to see as many friends in that time as I can!
