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.
