A few weeks ago I had an idea for a nice winter dress. Not in grey or black or any of those other typically-Canberra-in-winter colours. Oh no. I wanted to make a red dress.
I had no idea what pattern I would use, but I in my mind I knew what it would look like.
Lucky for me I have finely honed computer graphics skills.
And on the iPhone Sketch app, I'd be right up there in the artistry stakes if it were not for my clumsy fingers.
Today I discovered there is a crayon brush in Paint. Fun! And I added text. Oh, I am so the business!
Luckily for me I don't have to draft anything from these superbly drawn sketches. Because this afternoon my patterns arrived from Sewingpatterns.com.
Although I am not too sure about the V-waist in Simplicity1914 - I really wanted a straight waist so I could wear this dress with a belt.
Never mind - I'm going to have fun sewing whatever with this fabric, which is of questionable blend. It's been in my stash a long, long time.
The question is - will it be made and worn by the end of Me-Made-May 2012?
