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.
