The Latest Dress

I bought this gorgeous Amy Butler Fabric the other week and I knew when it came that I wanted it to be a dress. I sat down and cut the pattern last weekend... but I never got around to sewing it up so last night, after I had spent the whole day working on shoes I thought I would treat myself to some me-time sewing.
This is what I came up with. (excuse the awful photos... the mirror and camera didnt want to play ball today LOL)

I didnt add a tie to it, thinking that I wouldnt want one... but once I put it on I realised that it did need something. so either its going to be a belt... or I might make up a sash before I wear it out tonight... depending on how much time I get. :)

When you just cant sleep.

Last night I just couldnt get to sleep..... after tossing and turning for about an hour (and annoying hubby cos it woke it up) I decided to just get up.. normally I wouldnt but I knew I wasnt getting to sleep anytime soon so why not be productive.

So I pulled out the wide leg pant pattern I used the other day. This time I cut the size smaller as the last ones were a tad too baggy... didnt help these were too.. I think its the cut vs my shape so I will just have to live with it. I made these ones a tad shorter than the last pair too.

They arent the best photos and as you can see they sit a big baggy around the front... I added in some pleats to try and make it sit flatter but I dont think I did enough... and I am not unpicking them now. LOL.

All up they took about an hour and a half... that was with a late night OOPS moment that sent me unpicking for about 20 mins..... definitely should have been asleep. :)
