This year, I pledged to make two garments from my vintage patterns. This is the first one, which I actually finished a couple of months ago, but lack of photos . . .
It is Leach-Way Frock 13775 which features ties sewn into the side seams which you then wrap around your waist to give the dress some shape, well that’s the idea anyway.
My version of the infamous Walkaway Dress – the Butterfly Pose
OK, I’m cheating a little with counting this as one of my Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge makes, but if it’s good enough for A Stitching Odyssey then it’s good enough for me!
Yippee! The Great British Sewing Bee is back in all it’s glory! It’s series 3 and I was wondering how they were going to make it more difficult and/or find better sewers than series 2. Well there’s certainly some very competent sewers this time round and I can’t wait to see how they all get on!
You’ve got 7 minutes sewers!
If you’re a sewer, have you ever asked yourself “I wonder how I would get on making that item of clothing in the time frame they’ve been given?”
I thought so!
Has anyone tried it at home? If you have I’d love to hear how you got on 🙂
