The First Dress

The time had come to make something that was a little more complicated.  I had picked up 2 old patterns a couple of weeks ago but was a bit hesitant to use them as I have never used a ‘proper’ pattern before.  I have cut around items, used simple printed patterns from the internet and freestyled a bit.  I decided to go for the Butterick 3664.  I wasn’t really sure how to find the year the pattern was made, but it was bought in an antique store so that makes it old right?

Good Intentions!

As always, I had good intentions last Summer to blog regularly and make many new crafty things.  Once back at school (I’m a teacher!), I didn’t have time to do either.  Well, I have made a late resolution to try and pick both back up!

I haven’t completely abandoned sewing as I have bought lots of new things, purchased some little pattern books and I made a quilt for a Christening gift!
