Unfortunately only the bag is complete as my machine starting behaving very badly, which slowed me up considerably. However I'm happy with my little summer holiday bag
I'm a bit bummed I didn't finish the dress. I still need to finish the sleeve edges, hem the skirt part and insert the elastic, oh and take it in by about 2 inches. But on the plus side, it fits my boobs!! Never mind, I will have it for my next holiday.
I secretly think I have a dress-making curse on me, as the second I started sewing up the beach dress, the bobbin tension started to go mental and it was making nasty thudding noises. Turns out I had a tonne of fluff around the bobbin case (bad me for not cleaning it more). Still it's like something really doesn't want me to sew dresses.
I have a week off work after we get back from our hols, and I plan to make up my Beignet as the pieces are just lying there begging to be sewn together. However I plan to abandon my frappuccino dress now (autumn is coming so I wouldn't be able to wear it anyway), and instead I will make a Rooibos for work (and maybe one for play), the pattern for which I won on Ashley's giveaway. As Sarai over at Colette patterns has just done a sew-along on this dress (including how to do an FBA!!!) I am hoping the fitting on this dress will be less of an issue.
Right I'm off to catch a plane.
P.S. is is cliché to take "My family and other animals" as your holiday read if you are going to Corfu?
