Alexander Henry fabric straight off so found some very sweet and super bargainous cotton at Watford market to make the pattern up in first. Good job as I seem to have made it rather short - even after my teacher made me add a big chunk to what I had drawn out - I am bad with a tape measure - but I will get better with practice!
I think it's time to add the facings next but as I wasn't too sure and I haven't done those before I quit while I was ahead; best not to have to start the lesson ripping out eh?
Two key lessons learnt - sometimes cowardice is wise and sewing is your friend if you don't bite off more than you can chew. Sewing is also friendlier with The Colette Sewing Handbook around. Highly recommended - neat little lessons in the front and very sweet patterns.
