The bulk of my June hols is spent at sewing class. It’s an awesome place, really. People there are a genuine and fun bunch. I’m currently working on my last project in the beginner’s course – a princess-cut dress. It’s almost completed, just left with top-stitching the neckline, tidying up the arm hole and sewing a pink sash to go with it! Oh, maybe adding some lace or ruffles at the hem too.
And I’m considering practising my princess cut by making a dress like Victoria Beckham’s with duchess satin at $8/yard
, if I can find the cloth in the same shade of purple. How cool is that? So far, I’ve practised making a flare skirt, still in the process of practising an a-line skirt and trying out a half-circle skirt. Once these are completed, I’ll move straight on to the full-circle skirt I promised myself and a lace-ish half-circle/flare skirt!
