Ok, new year, new start. Im going to attempt to update regularly.

So, to start with lets get caught up on old projects. First up a dress. Im totally in love with the 50's, but being that little bit bigger means a difficulty in getting clothes to fit me. I went into my local fabric store, saw this fabric and fell in love. At first I was thinking a shirt dress, but then when i got the fabric out I changed my mind. And with a
bit of cutting, not mush measuring and a lot of cursing, i came up with this;

Excuse the dodgy photo quality, and my face. Once i can get a better photo of it I'll put it up. I'm going to have to take it in though, since making the dress i've lost nearly 2 stone, meaning it is now too big :( Alas! However, not to worry, better to big than too small.

Also along the clothes front, I made a skirt to go with a corset I already owned.

Its a simple circle skirt, no seams, with i think three layers of net and a lining, sewn directly into some elastic, with ribbon on the outside waist that ties in a bow at the back. Its not hemmed, although the top layer does have a zig-zag stitch around the bottom to stop it from fraying too much.

So thats them, i'll now go organise other photos!
