leaving on a jet plane..
oh how i wish i was..i had to spend my Friday lunch hour in a travel agent today for an assignment, and the thought of some of the lovely places i could be jetting off to rather than this rainy town at the moment make the weather seem even that little bit more miserable..
i was meaning to get this post up yesterday, but everything this week seems to have been so busy that I just haven't hadthe time- hopeless I know..
this dress was one i found and tried on in one of the vintage shops in manchester last week at the meetup, and i really like the print, but feel like it will need a little altering to put in some darts to make it feel a
bit closer to the correct size - it has no manufacturer tag and looks to be handmade..the greY leopard print cardi and tights were to pick out some of the grey in the pattern (both primark) and given the weather i felt it necessary to dig these boots out..it's June ffs!
as a rather nice end to an insanely busy week, i had a sewing lesson after work on friday, these photos are to show what stage this dress was at before I went, and the 'after' shots are to follow..there's still a lot for me to do and it may seem that i am only making really slow progress with it, but im pleased because im not cutting any corners and will end up with perfect alterations to my physical pattern which will mean that any similar dresses inthe future should fit perfectly without the need for any alteration!
