I made another dress using a Lekala pattern before my holiday to take with me. Lekala 4029 is a a side drape dress with a cowl neckline and simple design lines. It caught my eye because I had been looking for a simple cowl neck dress to make with some of my Spoolette fabrics. The fabric was bought from Fabworks in Dewsbury. Its such a wonderfully rich colour I do wish I had got enough of it to make a wrap dress.
A quick post here mulling over how to follow blogs. Having just got back from a lengthy holiday in which I was forcibly unplugged from the interwebs due to a broken phone; I find that I have returned and have a lot of catching up to do with the blogs I follow.
If you are like me, and you have lots of blogs to read, but don’t always remember to go there, don’t have the right time to get online but fish around other spots and then you realize it’s been a month or more since you’ve been to your favourite spot on the web.

After my success with my first Lekala make last year – a dress for Indie Pattern Month New to Me week I have since bought more patterns. Loads more :-). What can I say I love a bargain! They really do have many lovely designs that are so reasonably priced.
I am back after an epic 3 week family holiday – I then needed a holiday to recover from being the operations manager of said holiday :-). After a few days of R&R I walked into my sewing cave and was disgusted by the mess – I have since been busily beavering away when I can to organise it. Promise I will post as soon as I am done. Anyhow I hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday too.
Tonight I am excited to share this shirt. News FLASH – I actually made a shirt that is not a Granville! Its Burda 6849 which I finished before the holiday. Made in cotton lawn thats like Liberty but I am not 100% certain.
