Have you ever purchased….

…….something that you know you will need to alter, before you wear it?  I did today.

This dress looks even more lovely, vibrant, floaty and summery in real life.  It almost fitted perfectly.  It attracted me with it’s interesting palette and unique look.  The weather today was adding to the dress’ appeal – Spring is well and truly here in Melbourne, and it was quite warm (and I was quite overdressed).

The fly in the ointment was how high the yoke was sitting, and how high the dress sat, up under my armpits.  The obvious, and perfectly achievable solution is to add some length to the straps at the shoulder seam.  I already have several fabric candidates in my stash, and next I just need to take up the quick-un-picker.

I have started my sewing-for-Christmas-regime with these lovely faces, on a present for Amelia’s teacher.

This is a stitchery that I designed last year, that features both my school aged children – only problem is that neither of them are wearing glasses in the design, as they both are now in real life.

Rory’s hair is also quite different now.  It is a little too late to change it – I actually started stitching this up 6 months ago, and gave no thought at all to the specs, or the hair-dos.

Have you started thinking of your presents for the teachers at the end of the year?
