Sewing a Dress

Sewing a Dress

Today we are having a little break from our incredible heatwave!
So much so that it actually feels cold!

Over the last couple of days we have had temperatures of up till 38.5° Celcius.
I seriously wondered if I would melt!!

Today's temperature is 26°C which I much prefer, I actually feel like I can walk around again and do stuff which has been almost impossible to do lately, I haven't even been able to write a blog post or two for fear of shorting out the PC with my excessive sweating!

Because of the high temperatures I have decided to focus entirely on sewing this week, and with all of my material from last week dry and ready, I thought I would start with Nicole Vasbinder's - Learn to Sew a Shift Dress.

I am totally loving this course and am thrilled at how good the project is looking! 
I am just about finished my dress and will share it with you all on Friday as I just have the hem to complete today :)

Once this project is finished I will either be starting another dress or some pajamas for the family - watch this space.

My "Golden Rule" arrived through the mail today and I can't wait to get into some of these patterns too and see where my sewing may lead me!


As soon as I have tried it out I will let you all know what I think about this system :)

Reading wise - Nothing new to tell, still busy with last weeks book and still enjoying it.

What have you been up to this week?

I will be sharing this post with all my weekly creative friends.
Until next time

  1. It definitely isn't fun knitting when it is hot. Yesterday was so incredibly sticky! But, today there is a wonderful breeze and I have been enjoying sitting drinking iced coffee and listening to the birds.

  2. Enjoy your dress sewing. I have been doing more sewing this summer too.

  3. Can't wait to see the dress. Sewing is much more fun than knitting in the heat.
