Snow Day - Sew Day

We had actual snow in Cornwall last week.


It doesn't happen often.
Being stuck inside the house I decided to do some sewing.
I made Naomi this Game of Thrones inspired dress, using a textured dragon scale fabric (pattern New Look 6391, re-drafted to a sweetheart neckline)


And for myself I made the Tilly and the Buttons Orla top using a bargain piece of cotton lawn which cost me the princely sum of £2 at the Craft 4 Crafters show last month.


I absolutely love this pattern. The only change I made was to alter the construction of the back opening in order to attach the lace effect zip on the outside.

Wonderful stitching, love the lace detail on the back of your top. Our snow has all gone and the rain has returned 😕
