Summer Clothes and other such things

Recently I have had the pleasure of creating a marvellous (if I do say so myself) skirt on my new nifty little dress making model. The pockets took a while because I am in capable of sticking to instructions but I'm pretty chuffed with the outcome! Before using the vegetable died cotton I had to wash it at thirty degrees with salt then wash it again to make sure the colours stayed... I think you have to do this with all vegetable died material. Cotton House in London stock a lot of these fabrics. I used the same pattern which I used for this dress and shirt... It maybe my favourite pattern ever.  

In other news, working full-time is exhausting. I've updated my Flickr stream, I am photographing nursery children again, I discovered the joys of Inktense pencils and the book- 'The 100 year old man' (extremely good read). Currently I am on 'How to be a Woman' by Caitlin Morlan which is equally entertaining.
