You have to love a pattern that asks for a bra repair kit in the notions!
I saw that pattern on Sewaholic and I had to have it and make it! Now Tasia and I can have a muumuu sewalong! I have a question for you : have any of you ever sewn an Ikea duvet cover?
I was at Ikea's the other day and picked this fabric (€1.50m) to make the dress and I am having second thoughts as I also bought a duvet cover on sale and I think it would be such a better choice of fabric.
While pondering that question, you might be entertained by the fact that when in Ikea, you have to cut your own fabric and I was saying to the young lady there that their scissors cut really well and she said you can buy some. So I did! They cost a grand total of €12.98 for the pair. They have a nice weight and the pinking shears really work (I bought some really expensive ones that were frustrating to work with). Consider this a solution for you beginners out there.
My FB fans also know I wanted hem turners and they came in the mail this week. I found them here. They are like hairpins for fabric and I think they'll come in handy when I start working with leather.
More on that later...
