The dress Tenneille wore to dad’s wedding last week, I started over a year ago. Â It’s made from a retro cot sheet I thrifted a couple of years ago and an old pillow cover that I no longer used. Â When I originally made it, it was a little too big, kind of a given, seems I didn’t use a pattern. Â I also needed to add buttons at the back and button holes, but my old sewing machine wasn’t able to do holes as it was faulty. Â But alas, my new machine does. Â So on the day of the wedding (of course!) I whipped out the dress from it’s year long hiatus, sewed the button holes, buttons and made a couple of adjustments to the shoulder straps to complete the dress. Â Tenneille was most excited that I finally finished the dress. Â I am excited that it is now off my ‘to sew list’! Â I also made some hair clips to match with some leftover buttons, but alas I forgot to take a picture and knowing my little cherub, the clips could be anywhere now.
What have you been sewing/crafting of late? Â Jacinta x
