Bright Green Pinboard

I took a pot of tester paint and a pinboard I found in a charity shop for 30p and by combining the two ended up with this bright green pinboard. Perfect for my craft room.

Tiny Car Dress

This is my fifth Mortmain dress, I love sewing and wearing them so much I can’t stop! This time I have made a gathered skirt. I am very happy with it.

The fabric is cream with lots of tiny cars in bright colours. To make the dress more interesting I used bright orange bias binding round the neck and armholes.

The Mortmain

Last week I bought myself some fabric and a pattern from Berylune. I used my long Bank Holiday weekend to make a dress. The pattern is The Mortmain from Gather. I really like the feel of the pattern envelope and all the illustrations. I found the instructions easy to follow and enjoyed making this dress, I have even cut out the next one already!

I love the shape of the dress and look forward to trying it with an exposed zip. I wasn’t able to get the right zip in time to sew it this weekend so just used a normal one.

I love the Cloud 9 fabric and took more care than I usually do cutting it out as I wanted the scissors running up and down on the skirt and bodice, but across on the waistband. I am really pleased with how this worked.
