A long picture post guys! It's my Sew Weekly creation all completed, my post went up on Thursday, but I'm all LOL-ed out because the COMEDY FESTIVAL has started in Melbourne, and I've been out every night after work, and have only just sat down with a Saturday cuppa tea to write to you and check out your blog!
As you can imagine, I'm super happy with the dress! The theme was Unfinished Objects (UFO's! I remember asking Kristy what a UFO was ages back, because I had no idea what people were talking about in blogs! I also don't usually have them lying around!) and I'd started this dress right before crazy busy work time in 2009, and when I realised I didn't have time to finish it, I'd folded it up so neatly and nicely (with another skirt) until now.
How freaking GREAT are my new Melissa's??? Of course I bought them from my friend's shop OKOK in Brunswick, but I'd wanted some muted coloured heels for a while, as I have heaps of black ones... but no pale or tan ones (Doggie Darling ate my vintage tan boots, so have been missing a paler/lighter colour).
I bought the pattern new, the first few months after I learned to sew... I wanted a dress to wear to the Sale Cup and I made the purple version in Emerald Green and I still have it for when I'm having 'skinny' days as I might have been a fraction skinnier when I made it. It's a great vintage-esque pattern in my opinion, and super easy to make and follow.
Hope you're enjoying your weekend! I'm looking forward to spending the afternoon in the sewing room (for next week's Sew Weekly Challenge) and seeing MORE comedy shows tonight! Did you watch the tv show The Flight of the Conchords? I'm seeing Arj Barker tonight, he's in the show and appears in one of the better songs in the second series "Too Many Dicks on the Dancefloor"! I loved the first series, but the second series (especially the ending) was a little too wishy washy for me!
Take care, xoxo
