Making

Here I am, subjecting you to yet more pictures of me !!!!
I have made a lovely summer dress and spotted underskirt, fabric and pattern from Merchant and Mills...




 I had a lovely gift at Christmas from Julie at the cloth shed blog an old China Blue linen skirt and attached to it was this wonderful pocket. I cut the skirt down and patched it with lovely French patches and turned it into a wrap around skirt. I was so pleased (thank you Julie).



I hope you are all well and having a wonderful Bank Holiday.
Big Hugs Lynn xxxx

The sweet dress and underskirt are just adorable and you really do look great wearing the outfit. The pocketed and patched wrap-around are perfect too!

Aw Lynn both the dress and skirt are absolutely gorgeous Lynn you have a way of doing things that make each item special. Please bring out your own range of 'Sea Angels' clothing and I'd be first in the queue xx

I love the dress and underskirt ...clever you ! I would like to try and make something to wear but not sure I would manage it !! One of the best things about making your own clothes is they are so original and I think that makes them quite special ...the photo of you is lovely ...it's nice to put a face to the blogger ...Gail x

Hello from honeysuckle studio. The colour of your dress cought my eye while I was at Mrs Bertimus's blog. The fabric, colour and pattern choice is just perfect and you have made both the dress and the skirt beautifully Lynn. X

The Cloth Shed said...

Dear Lynn, I love your transformations and delighted to see what you have done with the linen skirt. So creative. I bought a Merchant and Mills pattern a few months ago, but haven't attempted any sewing yet....now that I have seen what you have done, I think the sewing machine will be coming out of the cupboard!
Love Julie x

I think your spotty-dotty underskirt just makes that summer dress Lynn!
OOh! I love polka dots! I'm a fiend, I have several bowls and pots of it, and tea-towels, and one or two dresses/tops. There's just something about it!

I loved your post about the Lammas and the strength of women. Strength runs through us like a golden vein, and boy do we need to call on it sometimes eh?

Hugs,
Jane
