With a pattern and a good teacher....




I made my very first dress.
It made me appreciate pattern makers, time, dress makers (even more) and people who are very patient!!
I was all grumpy and stumblingly last night...but today... I fell like I could make another 3 !!
The pattern was from spotlight, fabric from lincraft, where I finally had the courage to tell a lady that had pushed in front of me that "I think I was next". Tough I know but it worked!!

What is it with all the pushy ladies in Spotlight and Lincraft? I dread going up to the desk to have my fabric cut, as the queueing is never clear and someone always pushes in ahead of me. Very lovely dress!

Good on you for being brave enough to stand up for yourself...I am hopeless in those situations....

This dress looked fab when you wore it at Brown Owls last week!

PS. Always stand your ground, don't let people push in! Down my end of the world, we have to take a number at our Spotlight and Lincraft...much more diplomatic.

ooh i love your dress.. nice work!! i want something with sleeves like that!! i must go find that pattern..

and yes we have number tickets at my spotlight too.. although i always take it to the non-cutting fabric counter cuz they'll still cut it and you never wait in line as long..
