Another day, another project

Hmmmm… on reflection, I think I might be in the running for the Queen Of The Unfinished Projects award…

I’ve started yet another project (without finishing any of the others) and this one is a doozy! I’ve decided that with just a book and some YouTube videos that I have enough information to try draping.

Like I said to a friend, this could easily end up being the worst dress in the history of worst dresses, BUT it is going to be extremely interesting trying it.

I read something recently where the author said she was getting frustrated with having to stop sewing to research a way out of the problems that were arising… but then she realised that each roadblock lead to learning and gaining new skills… something I for one am extremely happy for… if we aren’t learning something, then what is the point?

Anyway, enough philosophising… here’s a picture of the bodice so far… I’m excited and extremely glad I don’t have to go to work tomorrow so that I can spend the day working on this.

Wish me luck!


OK… well not the whole day… maybe I’ll finally pull 4911 out of the pile too. :0)


  1. Thanks Rosy. Do you drape?
    It's been fun, but I didn't get to have my day of planned progress... it was sunny and beautiful here in Melbourne for the first time in AAAAGES so I spend the day outside... it was totally worth it! :0)
