I did some sewing today! I know, I can't believe it either :) I do admit I'm a bit rusty with the old technique, but I was astonished at how utterly happy it made me feel to be at my sewing machine again.
So, how did it come about? Well, I have a much-loved duvet cover from Orla Kiely and matching pillow cases that I decided were way too over-powering all together... It is the most gorgeous design and I found myself musing on what a cute frock it would make. Then I came over all thrifty and decided I could make a complete frock from just one of them and still have the other up my sleeve, so to speak ;) Well, here is the finished frock and I actually like it.
The Mr said 'Are we going to the beach?'... the Little One said 'That's a house dress right?'... but thankfully, my big girl said 'Cool'... so, I'm going with 'cool' :))
Apologies for the appalling photo... did you know you have to dust mirrors?!
