Dressmaking update...this week I sewed stuff! After carefully cutting out all the pieces of fabric for my dress I then zig-zag stitched the pieces today to keep them from fraying. I still find the sewing machine a bit terrifying and hopefully I will master soon as I have a tendency to form strong dislikes of inanimate objects that won't do what I want them to. And the best news...I have enough material left over to make a matching Turban! Now I am on the hunt for some amazing trimmings and embellishment . I'm also excited for my second instalment of the Great British Sewing Bee, in the same way that the Great British Bake Off inspired me to cook (EAT) the Great British Sewing Bee is great example of what you can do with a bit of talent and a lot of creativity. There are some great characters in it. I cannot wait to see how the remaining man survives with seven women.
The Vintage Fair was a great success on Sunday. Luckily for us we got to meet the lovely Deborah and Elaine from Closer2Fabulous and got some delicious cake samples from Bake My Cake. There were some stunning wedding dresses and very dedicated models who probably lost half their body weight walking round the very vast Carton House. We almost lost a pair of our fancy-pants briefs in the car park but aside from that it was a spiffing day and lovely to step back in time for a bit.
