Description

I have used this skirt pattern before and was very pleased with the outcome. not so time. mainly because I chose the wrong fabric, a very lightweight satin which I think is just too flimsy.

    You will love Ireland, the scenery is fabulous both north and south and of course the people are wonderful lol. I don’t know if you use patterns or just the magazines? but I found a site that is doing half price on burda patterns plus discounts on all the rest. Free p@p if u spend over £10 as well. I ordered 4 burda ones all Fab for bout £12 and paid via PayPal.it ends on the 15th?.let me know if u want a look and ill look out the name for you.x

      ohh yes. I’d love to have a look. I do llike the shop bought patterns (especially when at half price), less hassle :-)

      thanks for the tip. already had a quick look, they are good prices. so,which dress are you doing??

      It’s Weaverdee.com.There’s a dress I saw on another blogger and it was instant love. I’m doing a red one and I bought the chiffon fabric zip etc for it. I am also dieting so it looks good on me lol There’s a version of it just recently posted if u want a look.. x

      Check out the new postings on here, It’s the one with the cut outs! They are filled in with mesh / chiffon.I would never have looked at this pattern as to be honest it didn’t catch my eye but I saw a white one made up and It’s fabulous so I’m doing a red one. It’s 6858. Google it and click on the pics and u will see the white one. I love what this person does as she’s hugely talented but her ego: s s lot bigger.I used to comment on all her projects until I made the mistake of saying that I preferred her version ax I love seeing it on a real woman? It was meant as a compliment but she took offence so now I just look and don’t comment lol. Talented but not very nice lol x

      thank you Mary. I really liked the material, they had it in an orange colour as well, which looked also very nice, but it just isn’t right for this pattern. And it needs a lot of ironing :-((
      pictures were taken in Scotland, it was brilliant there. next on my list of places to visit, is Ireland. x
