Headaches all round

Hello wondrous folk !

So, I have been working on the bodice muslin for a new dress and have made 6, 6!!!!!  muslins ! The pattern didnt go to my size, so I had to work that out for starters, and that was before trying to account on the pattern for bumpy body bits !

Its given me a headache to be fair. So as much as I desire all your suggestions for improvements I cant bring myself to photograph the muslin selection as yet.

Lets just say I was more than a little proud of myself for getting rid of the busty lady's armhole gape ! Its amazing how easy it was. I think I will share my before and after pattern pieces with you as its incredible the amount of changes that I have had to make. Let me know if you wnat me to share how to get rid of the gape - it really is super easy !

In other news I FINALLY printed off the Sorbetto and will be making a version of that probably at the weekend, I need something simple to play with now as this dress making is HARD.

I have also loved lurking all of your MMM posts ! You lot are one big massive talented bunch !

I have not had much time to sew this last couple of weeks as I been busy with my science degree and work ! And really some of my current clients are doing their best to zap every ounce of positivity from my usually supremely positive body ! THEY are also giving me a massive headache !

Still, only a couple more sleeps til the weekend, you cant say fairer than that !

Pay it forward !

Hello beautiful people !

I have really enjoyed lurking the first day of MMM, you lot are a talented bunch ! Well jel.

So, I just saw this amazing idea over at Marie's place and basically the first 3 comments on this blog will receive a handmade gift from me (its a surprise !) which I will send to you at some stage over the next 365 days.     :-))

In order to play you need to:

Leave me a comment, (and your email address if you are not linked back) letting me know what colours you love (or hate !).  

You also have to play along by posting something similar to the above and agreeing to make something for the first 3 people who comment !

What a brilliant idea !!

I am IN !

Hopefully some of you lot want to play along too !
