So you think you can sew?

Yes, Yes I do think I can sew and I have the ongoing-Work In Progress-messy-sewing-room stuff to prove it!


So I had started the second pattern, Butterick 7181, on Saturday, and was getting pretty close to finishing, but I had a couple of extra things to do for my friends, and also a music festival in the middle... SO I got really distracted...

Here's one of my other 'maybe' outfits for the music festival... it is another vintage pattern from Amanda's with some great vintage tablecloth type material...


And here's another project I finished for my friend who is very passionate about the live music scene in Melbourne. And if you're into that kinda thing, I'm sure you know all about it. It's all a bit devastating.
So things are all in a bit of a state around here, and hopefully I'll be up for a tidy up tomorrow afternoon. I do love Fridays at home by myself (I hope to get home by about 1pm tomozza!)! It's been another great week at work, with loads happening, but I was HANKERING for pay day today. I'm sure you know what I mean, sometimes after Christmas and then this time of year with so much to do in Sydney and great daylight savings hours, you just wind up spending so much money! We're planning a trip down to Melbs next weekend, so now luckily have the money to buy our tickets down there!

I REALLY had hoped to wear that yellow dress to work tomorrow, but I got mixed up with 30 Rock and making Ratatouille tonight and now it's really late so I better go to bed. Nighty night!


  1. I'm intrigued by your yellow table cloth dress! Did you modify the pattern? I just don't remember that one having gathering, but then again, my brain and a sieve do have a lot in common. Damn 30 Rock preventing productivity - season 4 and not yet crushingly disappointing.

  2. Yes, bought the house and getting married, I know, I know all a bit serious. I would love love love to see photos of your wedding dress I need all the help and inspiration I can get! xx


Thanks for being awesome and a total darling, leave a message!
