My Goodness!! Where did the year go?
Some lessons learnt


I have finally finished my first garment as part of the Garment Makers Question Time course I am doing with Phillipa Naylor.

The dress fits well and is perfect for out hot steamy summer days.

But I learnt a lot of lessons from sewing this one.  ( I will write a separate post about that.)

I am back to making my zippered box bags and will have them completed for Xmas, I hope.  I seem to be doing a lot of unpicking.

And I am doing some more of those Kogin patterns for the Pin and Needle keepers

That dress does look just right for warm weather!

The most important thing is that I am dress-making again and loving it.
