I realised it had been 2 years since our daughter last stood on the beach, we are inland dwellers , we need to head to the sea more often.
I played with my phone camera to get some shots
She loved it so much she begged a repeat visit , so we headed back for more of the same on the second day - instead of the planned museum visits - the weather perfect for outdoor time.
The warm weather means we have spent very little time inside, I made a scout T
In linen and too big , not a success, so I tried again in a voile and a smaller size
Better but I'm not sure I like it that much
Today I tried to salvage a dress I made last year, the staple dress in a silk. I wore it once but decided I didn't like the look of the shirring in the waist so took it out.
I like it more, but there was too much fabric in the back, so I put a few pleats in the back
I think it's better.
Then the sun came out and so we headed to the river
February looks like a bit of a sewing right off - I have the Anna dress I want to make and also I want to try making a top in voile using the staple dress pattern , but work looks like it is going to push my sewing plans out til March :(
