I'm taking a few days off work this week to try and recharge the batteries, so to speak. I thought some time well spent with friends, a walk or two and a little sewing was in order.
I still have ample fabric to make some more girls dresses and noticed on Facebook that the organisers were particularly requesting the peasant style dresses, rather than pillow case style. They also mentioned that the US site has stopped accepting pillow case dresses as people keep making them from their old worn out thin ones,rather than nice new ones. Can you believe it? Why would anyone do that?
But I have nice new fabric I'll be using. Naturally I needed to buy a little something extra though!
I was considering taking lots of pics along the way so you can see just how easy they are to make but I think rather than do that, it would be simpler to give you all the links to the websites with the free patterns and tell you which are my favourites. I've also set up a separate tab, which you'll see at the top of the page, where I'll put pics of the dresses I've made and links etc, so everything useful is in one place.
I also came across a very moving prayer/poem which I have posted in full rather than just a link. Go and read it. NOW. Then make one dress and post it off.
Back again soon...
