We're only half way through Monday and already I can feel how busy this coming week will be. My sister from Canada arrives on Wednesday (Australia Day) with her son and husband. I can't wait for them to arrive! We also head off on our annual beach holiday on Sunday. A whole week by the beach with my parents and my sister with family. I'm hoping the husband and I will get to go out, at least once, for dinner without the kids and I desperately hope we get some nice warm, swimming weather.
Before all this though, I have a bunch of bonnets to sew, both orders and samples, a couple of boys hats and bloomers for orders and more importantly I'm dying to make myself a new frock by the weekend.
It's evolved into a bit of a mish mash of patterns or a frankenpattern. Mostly it's Simplicity 2591 (which I think, quite possibly, suffers from the worst sewing pattern envelop photography ever!), but I'm stealing the square neckline and back from New Look 6805. I'm making it with a bold stripe poplin from Spotlight, which you can see here.
I also have three finished garments to show you, but am struggling to find the time where my hair looks decent and I'm wearing make-up to photograph them.
I just need to finished my money sewing first.... I fear there will be quite a few late nights this week.
