Happy August everyone, and the beginning of the month means that it’s time to share with you my latest make for the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network.
As always my full review can be found using the link above, and this month I have been using this pretty 1″ check gingham which is available in 15 colours and is only £3.99 per metre!
For a bit of fun I decided to add some machine embroidery to the cuffs and the hem. I am always meaning to use the neglected embroidery stitches on my machine, but keep forgetting, so it was good to give them a go, and I am pleased that i did.
Thanks for dropping by, and I’ll see you over at Minerva for my thoughts on this dress.
Take care, and I’ll be back soon,
Hi everyone and Happy New Year to you all!
I just wanted to let you know that my latest post as part of the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network is now up on their website. It’s the Burda 7148 sweatshirt dress and is perfect for this cold start to 2018. I used a gorgeous loop-back sweatshirt fabric for this one and it was perfect for this pattern.
I needed to make several adjustments to make this dress work for me, but it all turned out great in the end. I will leave a link here to the full review over on the Minerva Blogger Network page, where I talk through all the alterations that I made and there are lots more photos too.
Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you over at Minerva!
Take care, and I’l be back soon,
