Recently we had to go to a party in fancy dress. The theme was to go as the drink that you were taking with you. I decided to make a dress using the Cloud 9 toucan fabric we had at Berylune and go as a tequila sunrise, it was more or less the right colours!
I used the Mortmain bodice and added a gathered skirt. I am very pleased with the dress and look forward to wearing it lots. For the party I added an oversized cocktail umbrella and a big petticoat.
I have made another Mortmain dress and this time I added some piping to the neck and waistband. It worked really well.
This dress is made from fabric featuring vampires at the cinema, making it my vampire movie dress. I am very pleased I found this fabric as I was looking online to see if there was anything good with vampires on it. This is perfect!
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.
I am very pleased with my shopping from Berylune today. Enough Cloud 9 fabric to make two dresses and The Mortmain dress pattern from Gather!
My sewing machine is all ready for me to get sewing over the Bank Holiday weekend.
I made Paul a knitting bag from some vintage Paddington Bear sheets. The bag is lined with plain blue fabric and has some nice big handles. I think this fabric makes a great knitting bag.
