Wow, were did that time go? 6 months in and only 6 more to go till 2015!
I am quite pleased with what I have achieved so far this year craft wise. I think I can finally say that I have mastered dressmaking and am now taking my first steps with teaching some of the skills i have learnt to my students.

I'm sure you will see lots of their lovely makes on our blog in the next few months, but in the meantime I shall leave you with another fabulous Clemence skirt I have made myself.
This time I used some vintage fabric I had picked up in the charity shop for only £2.50! It was not very wide and the stripes would have gone around me if I had cut it as per the pattern, so I cheated a bit and made 4 panels and joined them together. There is a seam right down the middle but due to the nature of the pattern you would never know.
I made the waistband almost 3 inches shorter on this one and I am much happier with the fit. Although I am somewhat curvy it would appear my waist is tiny in comparison to the rest of me!
This pattern really is a speedy make and with the help of my overlocker I can rustle one up in about 2 hours. A perfect evening sew.
