Just for me
Every year I say I’m not going to get caught up in just making cushions… and it seems every year that’s exactly what happens! Except this one – I’ve dedicated the first two weeks to only making things for myself!
Here’s a 1960s shift dress I made from a panel I found in a quilting store, featuring a family in traditional dress in front of a Japanese temple. If you look closely, you’ll see Mt Fuji on my right shoulder as well. I used navy blue sateen for the back of this dress after my initial choice of an indigo silk/linen blend turned out to not be at all colourfast.
And this is a 1940s eight-gore skirt in red sateen… I must be a sucker for punishment because I made this one with French seams! I’m blaming my Mum’s bad influence there!
