Antrim, Co Antri...






How frustrating is this? My last project vanished when i tried to add more photos?! All the pink lines appeared again and i could’nt update no matter how hard i tried, Any advice anyone. I’ll put the new photos on here and hope it dos’nt vanish.
this is burda 02/2.14 diagonal panal dress.
i do love this dress pattern.as its so versatile. The top i made for my mum with the same pattern x

    I agree with all the nice words here. Besides what I said before about this striking combination, I must add that the dress looks on you much better than on the model in the magazine and made of this fabric impresses much more than in an original pattern. Looks as if of your own design, undoubtedly it’s one of your best works, Mary.

      Oksana you are so lovely, thank you so much. Your comment coming from someone as talented as you makes me smile so much. I really do appreciate everyones comments and because they are from clever seamstresses it makes them all the more important. Plus my mum loves reading them.x

    Great dress Mary. I love Houndstooth & it looks great on you. I am new to this site so I don’t know about the technical issues. I like Ellen’s suggestion to upload the photos first, I will also start typing up in a Word document and then copy/ paste, that way I can have a copy just in case.

      Thanks mokara, thats a great idea about the copy and padte. I tend to use my phone to do everything rather than my camera and laptop. On my last post i did do the photos first then the blurb and it worked a treat x

      Try.it vinia, i have more to put on as well and.i’m dreading it. I like putting some construction photos on as well but recently once i upload 4 i either get the dreaded pink line or the error. I prefer seeing the items on the body as well its easier with the dress form but not as nice. Good luck x

      Thanks vinia, ellen told me what she does and i was thinking along the same lines. Do the photos first and if they load?? Then do the rest. I had three goes with this one which took ages as you know and then.i got it on. Then i decide to put pics of me wearing it on with the edit button and it would’nt let me. Plus the post vanished x

      Thanks winnie, apparently monday is the worst time to post. I googled server error and it said theres nothing wrong on my side its the site. I do think maybe theres to much volumne added after the week end and the site can’t cope. Wait to you see everyone changing days now lol.x

    You look great Mary! The dress is even more lovely on you than on the sculpture! I think it’s a good idea to upload the photos first – I’ve done that since last November when the first problem happen, so you don’t use a lot of energy for the description if there is a problem.. I hope it will be solved soon! Happy sewing dear friend! ;)

      Thank you so much ellen, its just so maddening to type everything out then lose it. Doing the photos first to make sure theres no problems is the way to go. I just wish i had thought of it earlier lol. I have gained about a stone over the winter period, i think i must be part bear lol. Its partly due to stress over mum being unwell and the weather but maimly i just love to eat lol. I’m now back to eating healthy as hopefully the weather will get warmer and i can come out of hibernation.lol i made the keyhole top like your gorgeous blue one plus a dress. Fingers crossed mum goes out for the day on saturday and then.i can photograph them xx

      It’s good to hear that your mother is feeling better – and it’s great that the bear is coming out for the Autumn ;-)) I would love to see your other items – looking forward to see them :)

    Thank you so much schnui, i was like the tazmanian devil last night when this happened, I would’nt go to bed until i got some sort of result? I hate losing my comments the most as my mum loves reading them. In future i will do the photos first and if thats ok then.i’ll add the description etc as that takes the longest x

    Awesome on you, with your great smile!!! The bad gateway keeps appearing for me also, but goes away if you hit the back button. However, I have noticed that problems always start on Mondays. I still think there is someone new in their IT department that is doing something weird with the coding!

      Thanks rita, it took me three attempts to get the projevt on yesterday and then i lost it. When i attemped to update it kept saying ‘this page dos’nt excist’?? I kept going back a page until it was like groundhog day lol. I’ve got used to putting projects on from my phone now so maybe my laptop would’ve helped. I wonder if its the sheer volume of sewers putting projects on on monday that has caused this rita x

    Lovely dress,Mary. I’m a sucker for dogtooth fabric! My whole account vanished and only re appeared when I restarted my computer. It keeps coming up with the message ‘bad gateway’ every time I try to log in and won’t let me log in via Facebook . I hope this gets sorted.
