next time you point a finger, i'll point you to the mirror..



on friday lunchtime i popped into the sewing shop before heading off to my appointment in the afternoon, solely to pick up a zip and a metre of tulle to line the polka dot dress i made a couple of weeks back..as i walked in, i spotted this print of fabric, and i couldn't leave it there! so, ever the queen of last minute, i decided i would make it into a dress on the same style as last time, and wear it it for my saturday shopping trip..by the time i got it all cut out it was probably 8pm so i was sewing rather late..but it was done, and wearable for saturday morning, when i added this red hat from xmas, and a crochet shrug cardigan from primark and headed off to liverpool to meet alex and one of her friends..we spent a lovely day shopping (vintage, fabric, and general) and then had our tea in a brilliant 50s style retro american diner - i took a few sneaky phone pics but not that many..all in all a fabulous day, and i will have lots of new clothes to show over the next few weeks of posts ;)

  1. Absolutely brilliant! I adore the print and the shape is perfect for your lovely figure. You are clever! xxx
    PS I knitted a square in moss stitch (30 stitches across) and then a smaller oblong (15 stitches) then doubled over the square and scrunched it up with the oblong placed in the centre. So easy, honest1

    Thanks so much again for the lovely gifts, am chuffed! If you want to join a knitting group have a look on Ravelry (you have to join first) - you can search by postcode. You probably know this. Good luck! xx
