Although I had a great time in America, I really did miss my sewing machine! At the weekend I managed to sit down and make significant progress on a Ceylon from Colette Patterns. The fabric is a mystery cotton blend that I picked up at the Walthamstow Fabric Frenzy for £2. It's got a dreamy drape to it, it feels almost fluid, if that makes sense - perfect for this pattern which has gathers and a floaty skirt. I'm thinking of using 1/2" white buttons and adding white piping round the yoke. What do you think?
Just like last time I made a Ceylon dress, I'm aiming to have it finished for a wedding in a couple of weeks' time. The wedding is in a field, with a casual dress code and overnight camping, so this should be perfect for hiding grass stains...
What are you working on at the moment?
