|Dress: Handmade (Betty bodice w/ gathered skirt)|
I guess sometimes not being able to sleep can have it's uses. On Tuesday morning I woke up really early and felt inspired to sew. So I made this dress from some kitten print fabric I bought from The Running Chicken's stall at the Festival of Quilts.
I'd been hoping for a Mortmain, but that seems to take up too much fabric and I've been quite stingy with my purchases lately, only buying 1.5m of most of my recent buys, so I went with a Betty bodice, and put a gathered skirt on it.
I wore it to work that very morning, with a trusty red cardigan which is older than most of the things in my wardrobe, and a pair of underwear print slingbacks: an old favourite from Irregular Choice, of course!
That is probably my speediest dress made this year. I don't know where the motivation has been since then, either, as I have so many things I *should* be making, and haven't sewn since. Maybe I'll get some time at the weekend.
