Many years ago, I was at University, studying to be a medical photographer, yes, that is what I am trained to do, but I have never worked as one, but that is a story for another day. Anyway, while at Uni, we were required to choose one subject that was not in our department. I remember at the time complaining, thinking there was nothing I wanted to do except photography related classes. Then I found a pattern making class offered by the Fashion Department. I signed up, and loved it! It was fabulous to learn how to draft patterns to make clothes that actually fitted me. I am
So I applied my pattern making learning's, and made a pattern for a peasant dress. Not satisfied with just making the pattern that evening, I started the dress, and almost finished it. When Zoe tried it on the next day, it was a little too short, so I added the strip of fabric at the bottom. I am very happy with how it has turned out.
I loved this dress so much, I made another one on Sunday, with a few small tweaks to the pattern (I made the length longer and made it less full across the chest).
Zoe looks gorgeous in her new dresses. Of course, her big sister Abbey wants one now too.
I have adjusted the pattern, and Abbey's dress will be made today with these fabrics.
Right, I better get sewing. The strawberry dress is needed for a fruit themed day at kinder tomorrow.
