an absolute nightmare

Perth, Australia






Purpleish blouse singlet with ruffles. Started this baby over a year ago… ran out of fabric for the binding, managed to scrape some together, then discovered that the binding wouldn’t fit over the gathers because of the weigh ot the crepe… the list goes on….. but horrah! its finally done. i do think it was the colour that kept me hanging in there.

Material Notes

crepe & chiffon initially…
long story short – the chiffon got the boot





Oscar de la Renta…. oooh la la…

Vogue Pattern (V2946)

    I think it looks beautiful and flowy. Somewhat dark photos though – for the ruffles in the front.
