My creative space 2010:2!

Oooh, look!
It's that purpley fabric from last week (the colour here is truer)

- and it is well on its way to becoming a dress.

In fact, it was nearly all done - I had just sewed the skirt to the bodice, then when I tried it on I realised I had sewed it on inside-out =(

So, now it is unpicked, and you can see here the beginnings of my re-gathering effort.

Well, re-re-re-gathering really - I spent a whole episode of America's Next Top Model on Sunday trying to get the gathers just so!!.

Tomorrow I'm going for take-away and some trashy tv with a friend (you know, in case ANTM wasn't trashy enough!) - so tonight I'm getting a bit creative in the kitchen too!

I have something in the oven right now - I'll let you know if it turns out ok! =)

  1. Oh a dress, how fabulous. I had a look at your photo embiggened, and I think I can only see one line of gathering stitches?? Teaching grandmothers to suck eggs aside, I always do two rows, one at about 6mm and one at a bit more than 20mm, I gather both rows at once after they are sewn and it is much easier to get your gathers even and you kind of sew in the middle of the two lines.
    Oh trashy TV, and secret cooking!!
    Hope to see you wearing your dress and eating your secret food soon!!

  2. That's such a great colour! I can't wait to see your dress all finished and right side out!

  3. Don't you hate that! The colour is lovely though, and your cooking looks intriguing.

  4. Anything made from smashed oreos is bound to be a hit.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! Have a nice day =)
