Sewing the Week Away…

Yesterday, I made blueberry muffins

I’ve been neglecting the blog, again, there’s a surprise!

I’ve had four days off this week which has been great. I needed them so much. Plus I’ve been focusing on sewing and have made one and a half dresses so far. It’s not quite the target of four dresses that I’d set myself but then that was a little ambitious. My main reason for spending most of my time sewing is to make my dress for the Sew Weekly UK Meet Up this Saturday.

As I wrote in my last post, I’ve been fretting and stressing about this dress which defeats the whole object of the project! Tuesday night I cut out the Burda pattern I’m using and then yesterday I cut out the fabric. I sewed the lovely, full skirt first. I find sewing the skirt is a great way to start off a project because it’s usually fairly simple and gives you the boost of knowing that you’ve already completed half your project! Things went a bit slow after that because I realised that I’d forgotten to make dinner. I ended up sewing bodice darts until 1.30am.

Things have been a bit slow again today, not surprising really after a late night, but I’ve sewn the front bodice and have one final dart in the back bodice. Now, to finish the rest!

  1. The muffins look delicious! Don’t worry too much about your dress. I have found that things turn out the best when I’m relaxed and sort of going with the flow! You better post a photo when you’re finished!

  2. I’d love to see a picture of the finished dress too 🙂 Not having ever done much sewing I’m very impressed that you can make a dress in a couple of days!
