wednesday...

My two vintage dressmaking patterns have arrived from here and here. (Yes I did finally decide to buy the other pattern I was deliberating over).

such pretty packaging

I'm feeling pretty nervous now though. I've never actually made an item of clothing, especially not one I might actually want to wear...

Pretty packaging, for sure. Jac, you will be brilliant making these items. Don't forget to share a few photos, of the finished product. xo

We all start somewhere, a little practice, maybe you could by some cheap calico and make a dress as a test and then you could make second one in the material you want.

Very exciting...Have fun! I love to sew, but it's been ages since I made an item of clothing. Do share the pretty result! Happy weekend :o)

I can't wait to hear how it goes. I'm going to get started on my dress this weekend, I think...if nothing gets in my way.

I agree with Liss: use something cheap to start with, that way you can see if you need to modify anything before you cut into the good stuff.

Have a great weekend!

the hardest part is getting started sometimes...i know you can do it!

This will be so much fun I'm sure Jac, and I think it's lovely to be making something you will wear!
Hope you're having a lovely weekend.
