I will also be wearing boots and thick woolly tights with it, just
to make sure.
Now I have to admit to doing something very silly!

Quick pattern review…..
….this pattern has an ‘easy’ label.
However I would warn that it is not for first time beginners.
There are set in sleeves, invisible zips, a collar and four darts and a back hem opening!
Yes, ‘easy’ if you know how, but if you have never tried these methods, I would suggest not starting with this pattern?
I found it quick to make, and nicely cut.
I have not worn the dress yet, planning to this weekend.
But I do want to make it again…a positive sign.
Next make is planned….!
So bestest to you all today….
Its so nice to be blogging again….Yipee !!! with a head full of plans…..
