We've been away in Spain for most of the summer - I had hoped to be able to do some blogging while I was there, but after an unsuccessful attempt I decided to concentrate on having a great time enjoying the sun, pool, and just chilling out. There wasn't much crafting going on either - just one pair of socks knitted.
I do have a few more pictures of some clothes that I find when I dip into my wardrobe - since I've started doing this I do feel that I'm making some progress in my wardrobe, but need to keep the momentum going. I'm also still having some problems with my sewing machine, so I doubt I'm going to be able to make any more clothes before that's sorted. I sat down to sew some name tapes onto clothes for first day of school the other day and the bloody thing wouldn't even stitch a proper straight stitch :-(
Anyway, back to things I made when my sewing machine was behaving itself: I made these two for a couple of fancy dress parties I went to quite a while ago:
The first is McCalls 8108 view B.
I was dressed up as one of the power puff girls with a couple of friends for a fancy dress party. My hair was a lot longer then and I found a huge red bow to put in my hair.
The other dress is this one:
The dress doesn't fit any more - but I like the pattern, so maybe there's some scope for its use in the future
Why don't I wear them?...well, fancy dress is fancy dress and I don't go to a lot of fancy dress parties (although I do have one to go to in a couple of weekends time with a wild west theme! - I have no idea what I'm going to wear.)
They've now been taken out of my wardrobe and put in a box - maybe they can be adapted to be something else at some point?
