The Joy of Sewing.

What ever I make, when ever I make it I really feel like I'm learning something. So today's lesson in the joy of sewing comes when you choose a pattern and fabric that you truly love it all seems to fall into place. I adore this pattern and have been waiting to make it up and having the nicest fabric, a little extra sewing was in store (even though the Christmas to do list is growing)!

When I was making this up I noticed that without a under lying agenda of time or occasion I was able to take my time and really enjoy what I was doing. Maybe all the little things just fell into place like having the right colour cotton, my making time wasn't just an allocated hour, with all this I relaxed and worked steadily.

So the photos are a bit rubbish and I'm standing in a weird way BUT, it's all about the dress, and I really like it, and of course being red it has a Christmas feel to it.

This will be the last dressmaking effort of 2011 and I'm pleased to be going out on a positive note rather than the past struggling efforts. Is anyone else still working on a Christmas or new years party number or are you feet up and enjoying a glass of mulled wine and mince pies? Either way, Happy Christmas to you all, and I'm really looking forward to the New Year. x x x
