So tomorrow night I’m going on an outing with the Wellington Sewing Bloggers’ Network to the opening of the Dowse’s Home Sewn Exhibition. I’m pretty excited about this, because I love sewing, and I love celebrating the things that people make for themselves and their loved ones.
However, I’ve had a rather jammed packed life lately. Dinner and/or movie dates on Friday nights have put paid to my selfish sewing time (in a most enjoyable manner), and I’ve also just spent a week down south visiting family. Which means that tonight is the night to get my dress started… and finished!
I made the toile last night, and it fits pretty well, so I’ll be go go go tonight – as soon as I can decide which fabric to make up!
There are two choices:
a) Teal/blue diagonal striped wool/silk blend.
b) Hot pink and black tiny houndstooth – I have no idea what it is off the top of my head, but it didn’t burn, and it didn’t melt…
Both fabrics are a little brighter than the image suggests. I’m working on my hubby’s laptop tonight, so I don’t have my normal correction software – nor a lot of time to figure out his.
Which should I make up? You have until I finish my dinner to help me make up my mind!
