    I haven’t had a chance to carry on with the Azalea, which is probably a blessing because I don’t think I have enough patience to rip all the seeams yet. If you want to send me you’re email address I’ll send you a little how-to on the skirt – a chance to repay you for your winter dress how-to!

    Hi emlj! JJ isn’t too tough, although there are some different parts- the sleeves and collar specifically. I didn’t follow the directions completely, because they were a bit confusing, but i think the resulting blouse is so worth a little confusion :) Plus, I’m happy to help if you get stuck, as I’m sure are many others. There is a how-to about the sleeve slit that squirrelypoo posted. That was the weirdest part in the directions, so it really helped me. You should definitely give it a try! I’d love to see your version :)

    Well, inbetween exams and essays, I’ve been working on the Azalea. But frustratingly, I didn’t read other people’s comments about how it comes out too big! So I’ve got a huge Azalea hanging in my bedroom…I’m sure it’s taunting me! So, rather than start again I’ve chopped out the underdress and I’m taking in the seams. Blurgh! x

    Hi, the bag turned out well. My mum was so happy with it [but that could possibly be because she’s my mum lol!] so that’s good. And I think I’m taking a sewing break too, but only so I can actually get my uni work done. Hope you had a good Christmas x

    Hello, hello!! I don’t know how I missed it but congrats on being a featured member!! I didn’t realise you hadn’t been sewing for that long – I’m very jealous! I’ve been going mad over the Carolina toiletry bag today [I’m taking a break before I give up all together!]. Happy Christmas xx

    Keep your eye open for the elastic, I found mine in my local fabric store. The top was so simple to make, and very flattering to wear although by the end of the night, I was grateful to take it off. It felt like a corset by about 3am!

    Dear Emlj! Thank you for trying the how-to, I was really flattered and at the same time I was overwhelmed with joy that somebody actually tried it and it turned out that that one is a masterpiece. Yes, your tunic is FABULOUS! I absolutely adore it!

    Helloooo, just to let you know I am definitely still going to make your winter dress – just need to find the time in the midst of writing a thousand essays. So don’t worry, your detailed notes were not in vain! x

    Hey Thanks! I did it with Grey suit material and red pinstripe and it seems to work quite well.

    Thanks x Pink Sunflower :)
