I fiiiiinally finished my new dress this morning. I started it 9 days ago, on the Friday of my week off. I would have had it finished last Sunday, but visitors postponed the occasion, and I only got round to finishing it today. Perfect timing for the Serbia v Ghana game this afternoon for which we’re venturing to PBM‘s sister’s house in West Norwood, South London, for a barbecue. We’re supporting Ghana, of course.
This time I used the same New Look pattern as my maxi and turquoise dresses, but again a third bodice. The fabric, Ghanaian print again, was bought in Brixton Market when I bought the fabric for my red dress. I have a real love of the African print fabrics this year and had to refrain from entering the shop yesterday when walking through the Market. However, I will be heading there next week with my friend Nina from work who wants to make a dress. Or rather, she wanted me to make her one but I said I’d make one with her while I make another.
I also have plans to make Ghanaian bunting and a patchwork throw from my leftovers, and have some other ideas up my sleeve too. All will be revealed in due course.
