9h00.
Thinking about having a re shuffle in my sewing room. I need not to have  
the 3 machines on the bench not so close together so I have to re-home  
the ironing board and a ton of other stuff.
  If I could get rid of some of my clients fabric and finished items I  
might make it!! Here goes.


13h15
  Done, it was less painful than I thought .
I would have more room to move if I could get clients to confirm that I  
can deliver their finished items and or collect them, but for now I have  
put the sewing machines where they should be and l have moved the  
ironing board across the doorway.

Bonus item the teal jersey and the pattern for a dress for me have now  
been found and are together! I can now loose them both at the same time  
instead of know where one is but not the other. Excuses for making that  
dress are now running thin.However I have a summer dress which Mum  
pattern fitted for me this morning to make 1st.

uh if you would like to just send the teal and pattern to me, then it  
would be out of your way and you would not need to worry about it!
Barbara, just wanting to help

Right when I can't find it I will blame you. LOL.
I made my cotton Poppy dress this afternoon. despite Mum fitting the  
pattern I still had to take it in a bit after I finished hey ho . It  
must be the weight I lost. I'm not quite used to the new smaller me.

Attacked the Simplicty 1800 summer dress pattern again this morning .

I made further adjustments to the back of the neck and the waist. I  
swapped the centre back zip to a side zip which I prefer. The pockets  
came out shallower than version 1 I think it's because I adjusted the  
waist down to a 10 from a 14  so the pockets lined up awkwardly, but I  
can fix that if I do it again, I would cut a new pattern piece next time.
I also had enough border print fabric  left over to make a short cute  
skirt for my future daughter in law .
  One or other of those dresses will get an outing tomorrow.

Update on Simplicity 1800.


I am wearing version 2 of the dress and find I still need to make a  
small adjustment to the front of the neckline. It needs to fit flusher  
to my chest . I can do it with a small tuck in the already made version.

However for version 3 I will actually  make the front sleeve pattern a  
little  bigger as it's pulling the bodice forward and that's why the  
neckline is gaping a bit. I's not always about taking bits out of a  
pattern I have to remind myself. It doesn't help that I have a very  
small bust cup but a big rib cage.

Hoping version 3 is the perfect fit, version 2 is great and version 1  
will get an outing on Monday night.
