(For a recap of Gifted Gorgeousness see Jo's blog here)
So, having wracked my brains for sometime over what to post I believe that I may well have come up with the most tenuous shoe-horn in the long and proud history of shoe-horning...
I made myself this dress last week.
Pattern is New Look 6632, and the fabric is a mid-weight lurex jersey from The Textile Centre.
How is it gift related I hear you ask. Aha! Since I don't have an overlocker, and sewed this on a regular machine, I used a short piece of vintage seam tape on the inside of each of the shoulder seams to stabilise them.
And the seam tape?
This seam tape?
It was a gift from Julie
Boom! Gifted Gorgeousness!
Well done with the shoe horning!
You are clever ..... I’d love to make myself a dress.
Love that colour!
Thanks for taking part in GG this month. Congratulations on the most tenuous shoe horn too!
ps it's October!
Well done Christine!! A shoehorn is a shoehorn...and a lovely job you did too!
You've made yourself an absolutely beautiful dress. I lovè the colour.
I'd say that counts :) Your dress looks wonderful and very comfy :)
Great job, nice dress. (Always keep a shoehorn too, very useful for GG or You choose posts!). xxx
Julie: It is a lovely look, the color is beautiful.
Great shoehorning, and such a beautiful dress!
That's not even that much of a shoehorn! I know the pain of having made beautiful things and not being able to show them yet. The dress is gorgeous.
Beautiful dress. AriadnefromGreece!
