A friend of The nearly 17-year-old gave me this fabric, from Kenya.
I had the idea of making a two piece dress for myself using this old pattern Simplicity 4487
and a standard Burda, bias cut A-line skirt. 17-tear-old waltzed into my bedroom/workspace, and declared the fabric hers as "it would make me a nice shirt waist dress"! Drat! No, I don't mean brat!
Does she really suppose I can turn out a wardrobe of clothes for her just like that? I know!
I'm keeping the fabric for myself even though I'm bound to end up looking like a 70's sofa. BTW, this bog is called sew much, not style much better. It's a process
|Free from Posh Junk, (a second hand shop in Mitcham) after I bought £15 of fabric including|
|this silky stuff, 4 meters and|
|this viscose type fabric, 5 meters approx.|
Nothing I buy is cheap, it's all bargain dahling!
