Hamilton, New Ze...
I had a go at making the Azalea dress, even though it’s the middle of winter where I live (hence the stockings, boots and thermal!) I struggled with the pattern a bit – it seemed way too big. I had to cut the top part again as the straps were so far apart they were off my shoulders. Hmmm, not sure what I did wrong there. I like it, although I’m not sure it is really a ‘me’ thing to wear so I may donate it to my sister.
Oh, and I think trying to put my first zip in at 10pm was a bad idea! My patience and tolerance levels were rather low.
Only changes were to add iron-on interfacing to the length of the tie.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
