Eggs, Camo, Boots & Update on M5850...

Hi Hi!

This is awkward. I was hoping to have a finished project to blog this weekend... but I am yet to finish my M5850 dress so here's a photo of my brunch to make up for the lack of finished project posts lately!

Corn fritter breakfast from Mission Cafe, Chapel St, Melbourne.
So fricken delicious!

Don't worry, this blog is not going to turn into a food blog!! This photo of the corn fritter & co is kind of sewing related, since I wore my latest handmade dress there!

Can you guess what I made?

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you would've have seen a few photos last night when I was working on the dress. If not, you will have to wait... I made this dress for a guest post over at another favourite blogger's blog! Once that post is up, I'll let you know :D

All I can say now is the dress is wonderful, I felt super cool in it this morning, in my trench and boots! My new boots! Part of last week's shoe-shopping-binge.

After brunch I went fabric shopping for my next sewing class project - Burda 7254. The pattern calls for jersey or stretch blend fabric. Being someone who basically has only sewn with cotton and polyester, I really struggled to find the jersey type fabrics. I don't even know what I'm suppose to be looking for.

I went to The Fabric Store on Brunswick St and was confused as hell. The shop was busy so I didn't want to ask for help. All their fabric is sectioned by colour... so I had trouble finding jersey.

I then went to GJ Fabrics on Lygon St and it was a little easier there, fabric was sectioned by type. The SA showed me a few jerseys and knits but nothing got me excited so I left. I'll be back though!

The M5850 WIP is almost finished. I know, I know, that's what I said last post, haha.

Last class I added the grosgrain ribbon straps, joined the dress fabric and the lining, hemmed the skirt lining and handstitched the lining to the zip section. I don't have class this coming week so it will be another 2 weeks till I finish this floralicious baby!

I have two cocktail events coming up in October and November so I need to make two dresses for those events. I am such a procrastinator though, have not started on them at all!!

I promise my next post will be a finished project!

Have a great weekend.
