This is lovely.
Two or three of these (nesting perhaps) would make a lovely gift - baby shower, housewarming, kitchen tea just off the top of my head.
Best wishes for your sewing.

I'm not a dressmaker, I'm a quilter

Looking at your blouses, there's no reason for you not to be both. Now that you have altered your pattern to suit your requirements it can be called a TNT (tried and true) and you can use it to make variations of that first garment.

If you are interested in making yourself more garments you might like to read Carolyn's blog http://sewingfantaticdiary.blogspot.com.au/

I've learned a lot from Carolyn as she describes her processes and procedures so well.

Best wishes for both your quilting and your dressmaking adventures.

I think it would be lovely plain with a sweetheart neckline, or, even a square or v neckline at the front and you can still retain the jewel neckline at the back?

Is your fabric patterned or plain as that may help you decide? I think a sweetheart neckline goes with any plain or patterned fabric. (Can you tell I like a sweetheart neckline . . . I think it suits everyone.)

Best wishes and great sewing.

Firstly, great save on the duvet cover . . . fabric is fabric as far as I'm concerned and if it survives the washing machine then you've acquired some great yardage.

Secondly, your maxi skirt is lovely. I love the intrigue at the back . . . you've customized your garment delightfully.

Best wishes and more joyful sewing to you in the future.

You look gorgeous. You should be very proud of each of your custom made garments. I do love the fabrics you chose for each dress.

As an aside, were your flats comfortable for walking around DL? I always seem to see trainers/joggers in many people's pics.

Thank you for showing me your beautiful dresses.

Best wishes for your future sewing projects.

This is a very elegant picnic set. I can visualize all manner of marvelous meals and happy times with it. Congratulations and best wishes for many years of great dining.
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to accessorize baby pink room for non-girly grown woman? on: January 28, 2015 05:29:29 AM
I'm partial to pink, maroon and brown as a triad. Maroon seems to bridge pink and brown rather nicely.

I have seen a living room done with pink, cognac and brown - it was very cozy. The carpet was a colour called latte and truly was the colour of a double shot latte. The timber in the room was a combo of light pine (the legs of the cognac couch and chairs) and walnut (tv stand, book cases, coffee table).

So taking salvaged cereal boxes, I created some pretty nifty organizer dividers for my shelves.

Your dividers would make it easy to take a group of fabrics off a shelf, use them, then put them back neatly in place. Marvelous.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Seasonal wardrobe conundrum on: October 18, 2014 06:26:41 AM
I can relate to your dilemma. In winter on really cold days I wear leggings then I have on a strappy summer dress with a long sleeved blouse over the top which then has a sleeveless dress over that. I hope this makes sense. On cold days I replace the strappy dress with a coloured sleeveless top.

I wear the long sleeved blouses all year round as in spring and autumn I roll the sleeves up and leave them open over a coloured sleeveless or strappy top and wear them with pants. As the weather cools off further I change the sleeveless top for a short sleeved top.

In the heat of summer I wear the strappy and summer dresses. I also have an overcoat for winter wear as the westerly winds are bitter.
