Apologies for the silence the last couple of months but my work load has been off the charts both in my full time job and my copy writing freelancing, but the good news is I am now free to sew and craft!
First off, I have picked the gorgeous fabric for my dress and riffled through my vintage patterns to find this stunning late 50s dress.
I’ll be making the pencil dress version, I would love to make the overskirt but I think it’s a little too fussy for the works christmas do.
The fabric is a gorgeous retro christmas pattern and the gold is metallic so shines beautifully under the light.
Only worry is matching the pattern but I have a good 4 metres so fingers crossed it wont be too much trouble, any advice gratefully received though – please comment below!
Secondly, I purchased the fabulous Doodle Stitching: The Holiday Motif Collection, which is just AMAZING. I can’t recommend enough to any Christmas crafters out there!
I have already traced some patterns for the tablecloth and napkins I’m working on for Christmas day. Updates to follow soon!
Thirdly, and finally, I am giving away two Christmas craft books this year:
The winner will be announced on 1st December, giveaway closes on the 30th November midday (UK time)!
