My Creative Space

Is it feeling warmer where you are today??? Nope - not here either, but it didn't stop me staying up past 11 last night working on this summer dress for Adele.

I made it with a few new fat quarters purchased from the Amitie stand at the Quilt and Craft show in Sydney yesterday. Talk about immediate inspiration. I love the contrast of fabrics. The pink yoke fabric is honeycomb kei fabric, not sure what the bottom fabric is but it's very lightweight. The dress is based on this thrifted pattern, but not exactly. 
In my haze of late night sewing I stuffed the button placket and the binding and forgot to trim the yoke, but I think it still works - I just need to finish it before summer.

I also finished another UFO last night...
A vest for Adele. I think every 7 month baby needs a vest right??

And always crocheting on the side...
This will be another bolero for Adele from this Cleckheaton book, made with super soft cotton from the Bendigo Woolen Mills.

For more creative spaces head over to Kirsty's.....
