As previously mentioned, I had some sewing time today which was so great, I can't tell you. I finally finished one of the dresses I wanted to make (haha - my aim for Tokyo was two dresses, two blouses and a host of other items. Hm.)
Isn't this fabric terrific? I love it and it wasn't that expensive - can't remember? 480 yen a metre?
I used this pattern which was quite simple but the necking and facing were a little fiddly. Read: VERY FIDDLY. The rest was a piece of cake.
And I finally, finally got to finish this cushion for my friend's birthday. Which was eherm..a week ago. It's a reminder of things that make us happy. The cross-stitching took forever, but I am pretty pleased with how it turned out in the end. I hope she likes it.
