I am making 2 x Sew Retro Bombshell Dresses I signed up today. Boom! Having been paid on Friday (long depressing skint month!) and waking up this morning waking up to a great deal on the course @ $19.99 (or €16.00 to me)... I could not refuse such a bargain. It looks fabulous. Bloody fabulous. I have watched half of it already, haven't even printed out the pattern yet. I am so excited. I am also infuriated... why can't I have stuff now!?
I need boning I need to buy the materials in which to make my bodice structured and supported, so I need to buy (on line, Ireland remember... snail mail) some spiral steel boning.
Also bought this week...
- Colette Patterns galore! Eclair, Parfait and Crepe
- This lovely retro print from Fabric Godmother. Check out the website, it's glorious...
Which Colette Pattern shall I use this on???
- Also laid-down: the deposit for my week away with Unique Couture on a week-course to push me onwards with some of the classical techniques of tailoring, sewing and pattern drafting. Giddy gum drops for that one. It's in East Yarkshire, so can sew in the day and see UK buddies by night. October a-hoy!
Some other great news in the pipeline, but I don't want to count ma chucks and all that... so I will reveal all in good time!
Later this week... my Burda Sewing Handbook dress....
