Abbey Festival

I'm the girl in the blue dress doing the washing up.

Why did every think it was a fascinating thing to watch!!! anyway... i guess the number of times i got asked if our fire was real just wasn't good enough! (yes they did ask if the fire was real)

Had a great time.... will have to post the photos later as i need to go to bed!!

Chemises again

Here is my progress on the chemise. It is now finished. Fortunately i can use nearly every square centimeter of fabric . The only wastage is about 10cm2 from the strip i used to make the underarm gussets. every other part of the fabric is used. took about 3 hours cut and sew, another hour for the neckline and cuffs. I have left the bottom hemmed at present.
