It's been over a week now and my pattern books haven't arrived. I'm like an excited kid at 1.30pm everyday watching what the postman delivers to my letterbox....yet another bill - not my books! Like my mum said "Japan is a loooong way away, be patient!"
So I need a new project...
A couple of days ago I visited my mother in law who was wearing a new shirt. She told me she bought it because the material reminded her of a dress her late mother had made for her when she was a little girl. Clothes can hold so many memories.
I just so happen to have some of that material - a light weight white voile with raised dots. I didn't know what to make out of it...until now. I will make a dress for my daughter, a tribute to her beautiful stara nona (great grandmother). Stay tuned...hopefully I will be posting the new dress in the wardrobe soon!
