I had an extremely productive morning today – I made the Rooibos dress! I was so excited through the whole process, I just couldn’t wait to see the finished product. I also had that slightly apprehensive feeling about whether the bugger will fit or not! No worries on that front though – it fits really well, here she is in all her glory.
And here is the collar detail at the top:
I bought the chocolate spotty fabric from Patchwork Direct in Darley Dale and managed to find a perfect match blue fabric for the pockets and facing, it’s spot on!
Here is the Sencha top I made last week too, I kept forgetting to take a picture but I finally got around to it today:
I love this top, it’s such a fantastic vintage style pattern, the fabric I used is called Antique Treasures, I also bought that from Patchwork Direct. This is the only good thing about being signed off work – you have time to sew! I haven’t made any clothes in so long that it’s been really nice to get back into the swing of it. Now I just need to buy all the other patterns from Colette and make even more clothes!
