I have had a few saris kicking around in my fabric stash for a while now and when My Lovely Mum treated to me some dress patterns for my birthday this year, one of them seemed perfect for this oneA few hours later and yes, for all for you fellow Sewing Bee addicts; its is the walkaway wraparound dress. Now, the pattern is supposed to be 'very easy'. Well, I'm sure it is if you opt for a sensible fabric like lawn or polycotton. Not so much when you have a lightweight almost chiffon-esque fabric though. Cue a whole lot of swearing and faffing about!
I think it will be ok in the end though, but if not, I will end up with a pretty summer skirt at least!
On the subject of saris; one of my crafternoon chums very kindly gave me a couple of bags of sari ribbons. I'm not a jewellery maker and as that seems to be all I could find to do with them on Google & Pinterest, I decided to attempt something different. First up I had to press my chosen ones, which took quite a while!
It's going to be a present and as soon as I have finished my cunning plan I'll post some piccies... any ideas what I'll be making?
