But, shock horror, she said 'yes its nice'. Quick get to the till and pay.....
So on to the sewing. . . .
I've had my eye on this fabric for a while, then the idea formed, with a suitable lining it would make a lovely dress. (and yes before I started sewing I checked with madam and yes she would wear it!!)
Using my trusty baking paper I traced the shape of the dress.
Cut, sew, unpick, use foul language, curse thin floaty fabric, sew, try on, carefully iron, loose interest, sew, try on . . . . then hem!!!
I still need to sew on a fastener for the back of the neck, but the weather was nice so we took some photos.
So the photos look OK, but you really need to see it on my model.
She said the shoes would look great !!!
Not sure about the hair maybe she should have tied it up, she looks a bit like Cousin Itt
