Finally, I can post again! We’re all settled in up here in Brisbane, and we finally have our internet connected. Today is my birthday, so we’re off to Mt Tamborine, which should be lovely. I have made negative progress on my dress, coming the the conclusion that the pattern I was working with is simply not going to work with a non-knit fabric – at least not for the bodice (I can still use it as the basis for the skirt). So now I am trying to put together a sloper and work something out from that, but becoming rather terrified that I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. Oh well, we’ll see what happens!
I’m sure I’ll be in touch with more soon!
