Of all the presents under the tree this year, this one had to be the most exciting, and it didn’t disappoint. Thank you so much Vicki from Minerva Crafts for this fantastic fabric…
I received a beautiful light, grey fabric (so perfect for Spring) with a very pretty net ‘ribbon’ zigzagging around it. You got my taste perfectly thank you Vicki! It came complete with matching cotton and was wrapped with some beautiful Christmas trim to use up next year 🙂
Vicki suggested that I could use it to make up something a little special for work, possibly, but it feels a little too nice for work 🙂 My immediate thoughts were, of course, skirt-related. I’m thinking it might make a lovely Clemence, although possibly the fabric might be a little too thick, not sure. It would of course make a lovely BHL Charlotte skirt, but maybe a little too unimaginative on my behalf…
I haven’t had a lot of time to play around with actual proportions, but there might be just enough to run up a ‘small’ dress. I immediately thought of the Megan, maybe? I had a quick root around my pattern stash and found this little selection…
They’re all versions of a shift dress, straight and sleeveless, so I might just be able to stretch to them. It helps that I’m pretty short, so don’t need much in the length department! I’m a little nervous of trying out something new with such lovely fabric though, so maybe the pattern on the far right-Simplicity K1609 might be more wise. This was the pattern I used for one of my favourites this year- the Galloping Horses dress, see here.
Ohh, decisions, decisions! I’m swaying towards a skirt… Anyone have any other suggestions? Do shout out 🙂
Hope everyone’s as pleased with their #SecretSantas as I was. Looking forward to seeing them all. Thank you so much to Lisa from Stitched Up From The Start For organising 🙂
Happy New Year!
