When I married Mr G in 1992 he was in the Army and we moved to Adelaide where I soon found myself spending a lot of time alone. It was then I bought my sewing machine and decided to teach myself to sew and I began my "stash" which grew considerably stronger than my sewing skills!
Back then I cam across this gorgeous cotton fabric, being a devotee of retro looks and a dreamer of 50's and 40's style clothes, I fell in love with it. I never used it because I was too nervous of wrecking it and wasting such a unusual fabric, one which rarely comes around twice - so using it was always going to be reserved for something special and a time when I could actually sew.
Fast forward 18 plus years and I am in my second term of sewing classes and finally feel confident to make myself a dress!
Still not finished as I am not yet confident to sew it "unsupervised" - but here is a sneak peek!
