I’ve got lots of lovely things to share this week. Most excitingly, My Dottie Angel Frock is finished!
I’m really happy with how it has turned out. There was a lot of superfluous bias binding but it ended up being useful for backing my embroidered top stitching. It’s really comfy to wear. I added interior pockets which complicated things a little as the pattern called for French seams. I’ve never added pockets before but, besides on being slightly smaller, they turned out just fine. I want to make another dress from the same pattern with some lovely light denim we have at Crafty Sew & So.
It was a perfect little activity, not too complicated just enough to keep my mind, and hands, busy.
Last week I went for a lovely Blogger’s meet up at Sew Essential, Crafternoon tea brought in some lovely fabrics and embroidery thread. I found this pretty Bicycle print in their stash.
I finished embroidering the bikes at home, I’m enjoying my little crafts at the moment. I took my mum to a workshop at Crafty Sew & So, in late March, to make a pretty fabric doll. I’ve finished mine the other day. Here she is in the garden.
Finally, yesterday I went to another workshop at Crafty Sew in So with my friend. We got to grips with an over-locker and both left with gorgeous cowl scarves.
