Until yesterday. I had a funeral to go to today (I know it isn't black but it wasn't a "formal" funeral so I thought muted and plain would be fine) and I thought this dress might work for it so I tried it on and lo and behold it fitted! So hems quickly sewn and I have a finished object!
After that I had some time to spare so I quickly made myself a Lady Skater. My previous post amply demonstrates my love for the child's version of this pattern so I thought it was about time I made it for myself. I used the green spotted jersey I bought in Goldhawk Road on Saturday which was okay, but lighter than I would usually buy (but for £3 a metre who cares!). I am really happy with the result and am going to make another using some Liberty jersey I bought from Shaukat a while ago but have been too daunted to use.
This dress also fulfils the Friday theme in the Me Made May Flickr Group which is "Polka Dot Parade" so as soon as I got back from the funeral I put this on.
Élodie and I have come to an agreement: one item for her then one for me. Since I have two finished objects she is requesting the same for her so it looks like I have a busy weekend ahead of me!
