I’m going to be quite truthful here, I’ve only made one of my make nine patterns but I have made two dress out of the same pattern (although one is not quite finished).
To be quite frank, I’m not that great at sticking to plans. Reason: Maybe there’s too much being released and I want to deviate (LOADS!!) away from a structured plan.
But I have progress in other patterns … Hoooraahhhh!
I’m in the midst of doing two Vogue 9075 (view a), one in crepe and the other in cotton lawn.
I’ve still got to finish a McCalls 7536 (the burgandy rose fabric) but I’ve completed a McCalls 7582 and a McCalls 7381.
After these I’m probably going to do a wrap dress in a stretch fabric which I got from Sewisfaction.
And then the Colette “Moneta”.
Mind you, I’ve had the colette “Moneta” pattern for yonks and the material, so maybe I should do that first – but before I make a plan, I’ll probably do both at the same time – well, can you blame me?
Oh yeah and then add all the wonderful fabrics I’ve got recently to the table …
Whilst in town on the Edinburgh Frocktail poster and prize mission, I picked up a few fabrics from The Dress Fabric Company, Bruntsfield. Eh, It was a sale, so how could I resist? The Edinburgh Fabrics had a lovely Tiger print on black, which I think @sew_sleep_deprived is in awe of. Also I picked some gorgeous Viscose Lawn from Dragonfly Fabrics online as well as a lovely crepe with birds on it from Fabric Focus.
Yeah, you can pretty much say I have truly fallen of the “self fabric ban” wagon and landed in the muddiest puddle known. Oooooops!
Another conclusion to this post is that you can say if I do make nine it won’t be the original nine as posted earlier in this year – that shouldn’t be a surprise!
That’s all for now, happy stitching!
