This is my latest dress from Pip Lincolns "Sew La Tea Do" sewing book. It's called the "too cute tunic dress" on page 54. It's a dress that you can have done and dusted in one evening sitting for sure! The patterns in this book basically has small to medium and medium to large. I assumed I was a small to medium... as I am usually a size 8-10. Once I had finished the whole thing the small to medium was perfect. I used a really really light weight cotton fabric that I picked up for $2 a metre. So $4 for my new top/dress. It's a bit see through so tights or jeans will be a must. I am loving making things for myself at the moment! Oh and this dress has pockets too!

My sewing and blogging and my life in general has had a slight shift lately with my husband being on crutches and 100% out of action. My mind has been chock-a-block full of stuff. I have still been sewing but just not posting them on my blog so quickly. I have finished hemming some things and making a few little things for Lacie for her birthday, and cause my mum is visiting I have sat with her and crocheted some more granny squares..
