I have got a lot of these types of fabric I collected over twenty years ago, and I just want to be doing something with them.
I have worked the lining and the sheer over fabric together, and pegged the hem, which gives the dress a slight ballooned effect when it is on.
I am just going to wear this around the house and mooch in the garden on hotter days wearing it.
I haven't worn dresses for years, and I like the idea of having some prettier things to wear that chear me up a bit.
Yup this is my new dressmakers dummy, I customised it with some obvious padding. She was a bit flat chested, and didn't have a roll of fat just above her waistline! Once I dressed her in a close fitting top I had, and padded her out in my extra curvy places she will be a great deal easier to work with for anything else I make.
She can also store back in her box if I have visitors and need my spare room tidy.
