The dress turned out very well with the alteration. Unfortunately we didn't get the pictures taken because youngest stepdaughter came by to say she is getting married in four weeks. Small wedding, unlike all other family weddings, only her dad, her mom, and me. In case you are wondering I volunteered to let this just be with her parents but she wants me there and I really like her mom so this is fine.
Now the big question is what am I going to wear?
Off to earn my living, more later.
- I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon
