|Potential dress in the making|
One of my sewing new year's resolutions was to try out some new patterns for me to wear.
Realising it is February already, and not having done a lot of my own sewing yet this year, I was taken by Scruffy Badger's Polka Dot Frock Fest. This sounds like fun, and possibly just the thing to inspire me into a bit of selfish sewing again.
With a couple of big dos to go to in the spring/summer, I am thinking along the lines of something a bit fancy and treating myself to some posh fabric with a nice contrasting lining. My chosen colours are going to be navy and white polka dots, with a plan to wear some nice red accessories that I already have (thus alleviating the guilt of blowing a load of cash on silk for a dress).
And there lies the first stumbling block. Faced with two lovely looking fabrics that I like from here, I cannot decide which one to choose!
|This classic looking version?|
|Or this fun twist on polka dots - but would it work on a dress?|
|A wild card - I love this summery tangerine colour, but probably not for me? |
(I'm looking in your direction to be brutally honest, Sang)
PS. Two posts in a day after a fortnight of radio silence. Can you tell I am sitting on the sofa with a poorly littlest girl...?
