It's been a busy month or so out here. We took a trip down to Canberra to see friends, do some shopping and revisit autumn. Nowhere in Australia is autumn as beautiful as it is in the ACT and surrounding region. There's just something about it, (although I know that Victoria is glorious this time of year as well, so some people may disagree with me on this point). In typically "me" fashion I neglected to stop and take photos, putting it off and thinking that I’d do it later. Or tomorrow. Obviously this didn’t eventuate, but there's always next time…
I hope that this post finds you well. I'm here today to write a little about my experience testing and sewing the SMYLY (that's, Sewing Makes You Love Yourself) Samantha Dress. This is particularly exciting because Samantha is SMYLY magazine's debut pattern!!!
I hope that you all had a lovely Easter. Personally, I had to work Easter Saturday and Sunday, but at least I had Good Friday off! We went to a morning service and then on to the Telegraph Station, which is a beautiful nature reserve outside of Alice Springs.
Good evening (or morning!) everyone,
I hope that this finds you well. It's been a little longer between blog posts than planned, but c'est la vie!
Today I bring to you the Wren Dress by Colette Patterns. This dress encompasses a couple of firsts for me. Notably it's my first foray into the world of sewing jersey as well as being my first me-made clothing which I classify as a "maternity make".
Welcome to my second blog post. Today, I would like to share with you my
most recent make, this being my contribution to Sewing Makes You Love Yourself.
I have decided to give blogging a go, so by way of an introductory post, I want to explain my choice of blog name and a smidge of what “retro” means to me.
As a long-term admirer of vintage fashion and dress I wanted a nod to what initially drew me back to my sewing machine in the title.
