Ta-Dah Tuesday

Good morning

Another cold one here in Suffolk - least there's no white stuff falling (yet).

Now I showed you some fabric a week or so ago and here's it made up into a new frock for me;

 Firstly the little detail at the back - these buttons spent 10 days as part of our snowman - when he left us and I tidied up I decided that I'd use these on my frock!!


My new cheerful dress - yes using the pattern I always use (one I made up) - seems to work and fit fine - the bow means I can tighten it if when like the moment I am losing some inches! I know not the greatest picture - the light has been really poor here since I finished sewing!!

All ready and waiting to be worn when I go and swoon over Jon Boden & Bellowhead on Sunday night! Am sure he won't notice but I know I've made the effort!!

Next week there's the potential for two ta-dah moments if I get another sewing project finished and can get some more paint for the other project - almost finished yesterday but I ran out with just a little bit left to paint!!

See you soon

Lovely fabric and it looks really professional Vicki.
I've got a dress that I might draft a pattern off as it fits well, and then make it up in different fabrics.
