Jo's dress

I've started cutting out the pattern for Joanna's new dress.

We're doing view C but with the sleeves of B. All that means is I'm not adding in the 7 godets in to make it more flouncy. The hem measures 300cm as it is so there's no need to add 7 more pieces to add to that. (That's the excuse I'm using and I'm sticking to it! Laziness doesn't come into it at all!! :oD)

Here are the bits all cut out and ready to be sewn.

I've sewn the front and side fronts together and the zip is in the back but I didn't take photos - maybe tomorrow.

I'll also need to take photos of the house now that we've got most of the decorations up - again, maybe tomorrow. I keep finding wee piles of things still left to hang! Maybe the thought that I'll be taking photos will spur me on to get them all up!


  1. Woo hoo! I'm so excited!

    Thanks, mama!

  2. That will look very nice. I think we need Joanna to model it for your blog when it's done ;-)

  3. Oooh, that dress looks nice - glad to see mine with all those panels didn't put you off for long!! :o)



Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blethers. I really appreciate it. I do try to reply to everyone but sometimes life just gets in the way of that happening! :o)
