Vision


I received a lovely surprise from Trudi at last weeks NCB....

This lovely piece of vintage fabric came from her aunty (please correct me if I'm wrong Trudi).


It's the perfect amount of fabric to whip up a lovely vintage style dress..... I wonder if that was the original intention when it was purchased?

As I've never sewn a proper dress for myself before, I'm going to put my birthday voucher to use, and enlist some help from Bec.

In the meantime, Frances is looking quite sauve draped in a vision of loveliness....

Wow - my mum had some fabric like that in a green that I made a long skirt from - I think she said is was originally curtain fabric - but who cares!
