I hope you are all well and the weather is not making you too miserable, the heavens keep opening here and we are having quite a bit of rain it sounds torrential on the conservatory roof. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all you lovely ladies for your sweet comments over the past few months of my blogging, i mean to say it every time but i get so caught up that i for get so to all you ladies a big thank you for making me feel part of the blogging family community i have made many new friends and learnt a lot.. I thought i would show you the pattern and material my daughter Lauren has chosen for a dress, she is going to London in June with the school for her drama, they are going for two days and will be seeing Wicked and Hairspray, at the theatre and the dress code is smart, so this is what i will be making after i have finished my PIF,i dare say i will be making many more, i haven't made her anything for quite a few years but she has been reading some blogs too and is now very much into wanting to make her own clothes so i will be helping her to do a simple pattern soon. Well i have sewing to do and i will be watching Kirsty later by for now.

Hi Pat

That material for your DD dress looks lovely, I am sure the two of you will have great fun making it. Sounds wonderful that she is going to see two shows with the school. Things have definately moved on since I was at school.

It is nice to get comments on the posts you do. I think they can take a while to do so its nice to know you arent doing it just for your own amusement! I think my commenters have been busy for the last post i did, either that or the "vintage" electrical goods were a bit too beige!!! lol.

What a lovely pattern, love that material too!! It sonnds something to look forward to for your daughter, both the shows, and the lovely dress!!! Nice to hear that DD is getting interested in dressmaking too. She certainly has a great teacher!!!
I know what you mean about blogging, it's great to get all the kind words, and friendly comments. I love looking each day to see who else has replied - it's great!
Just to let you know, I am putting your PIF in the post tomorrow. Hope you receive it quickly, but because of the bank holiday, I suppose it will be next week.
Have a lovely weekend, let's hope that sun shines!!

Lovely dress pattern and fabric (very funky) ..... do I sound 'hip' enough?!!! LOL

I'm going to see 'Hairspray' in a couple of weeks - I'm really looking forward to it and can't wait as I'm a big Michael Ball fan!! :0)

Hi Pat,
Thanks for your kind comments. I don't think my sewing is as neat as yours, but it is made with lots of love!!
I watched the Kirsty programme too, I was finishing your PIF!! Preferred this weeks one, to last weeks. Wish I had as much cash to spend!!

Hugs : )

That pattern is just lovely and the fabric is gorgeous, can't wait to see the end results.
I want to start making my daughter some clothes but a bit scared to get going.
Thank you so much for all your kind comments on my blog.
I'm soooo excited about the PIF.

I love the style of dress she has chosen, its so smart, I love halter necks... the fabric is beautiful too... I remember going to see Cats and Underneath the arches... we all fell asleep in the middle of underneath the arches and then an air raid siren went off and you have never seen so many children jump out of their skins... lol

Have fun and I can't wait to see the end result!

Hi Pat,

Thanks for visiting my blog. I have a nice long weekend to look forward to, but I've still got work to do on the rag dolls I'm making, which is why I haven't been able to post about anything for a while - I look forward to getting back to making things for me!! :0)

Little Knitter Gem said...

I have that exact pattern!! I have just bought some tracing paper to draft it ready to make myself a dress from it for the summer. I am a bit apprehensive, but it says it's easy, so fingers crossed I'll be able to make something vaguely resembling a dress with it!! It wont be as good as yours though, I'll bet!

Have a great weekend Pat. :)

Hi Pat, why have you got egg all over your face? did your blender go mad while making a cake batter?

Whatever it is your thinking you have done is not apparent to me so don't stress my dear...

Hope you had a fab weekend
