With the other quarter-made wool dress still languishing in a drawer, I’ve embarked on a new project. (That’s the trouble with a tricky pattern. It’s easy to tire of it, with the endpoint seeming so far away, and look around for a quick win elsewhere.)
The fabric is from Murphy Sheehys – a stretch wool, lovely, and half the price of the other red. I’m using a stretch lining I got in Fabric Select. (A word here about stretch lining. At €15 a yard, this one was quite pricey. I’ve since discovered Michael H’s range – a wide selection and much cheaper. Hickeys has some good ones too).
All good so far. I considered lining it and opted to line only the skirt (ref quick win).
Would like to finish this at our Monday Sewing Bee tomorrow.
