Whilst I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving (though have appreciated the Black Friday sales) I do enjoy the run up to the festive season.
For me, it’s not this time of year without:
So it’s (past) mid November and I am sooo behind in terms of sewing, blogging and generally being organised. I’ve decided to blog my J Dress without photos of it being worn, mainly because the wintry weather (it snowed – or at least sleeted – yesterday) means I won’t be wearing this summery make again for quite some time.
The J Dress is Le Jardin dress. I purchased the fabric from Holm Sewn at Easter, and just loved the print and vibrant colours. The pattern was yet another Cynthia Rowley 1873, with a self-lined bodice. The only difference with this pattern was the silky fabric meant I tried a rolled hem – with varying success in different sections. Alas, no close up photos of this. I wore this dress on the last day of term before the summer holidays, to go out for a meal with my mum and dad, but I didn’t take photos as I was too tired and ready for the hols.
Now I’m off to trawl through my photos to try and work out which one my K Dress was…
The prompt for this week’s photo challenge is magic.
The first photo I’ve chosen was taken a couple of weeks ago during a school visit to Sherwood Pines. To me these chairs had a definite air of wizardry and magic.
