Just in time for summer and sitting in the garden, I finished my daisy print dress. It has already had it’s fair share of being worn and going through the wash! (Does anyone else have that breath of relief when a handmade garment comes out of the wash for its first time unscathed? I don’t know why but I always have images of them coming out torn to shreds!)
I have decided chambray is my new favourite thing and I want to makes lots of chambray dresses and tops, it’s so pretty. Easy to sew with and iron but the only thing was it was difficult to unpick without leaving marks.
I really liked the 1970’s pattern I used too but I’m not sure if I would use it again. I have a massive gripe with the bottom of the button band, I don’t know if I can write down in words but I’m sure you can see it doesn’t sit properly and creates almost the look of a pleat in the front when I’m wearing it. I spent so long unpicking/stitching and this is the best it was going to be. Humph!
I can’t resist one last photo… Such a beautiful place, I can highly recommend taking a trip to Pemberley Lyme Hall 😉
