The wee ditty currently running loops and loops around my head goes a little something like this:
Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turning red
Crying's not for me, no
NOT WHEN I'VE JUST MADE A BLIMMING AWESOME DRESS!
Teardrops or raindrops, it doesn't really matter which one it reminds me of - the Tyger loves it, and I've completed another successful stash bust. Woohoo!
Pattern: Rosy Posy dress, pattern #26 from Ottobre Design Magazine 3/2011
Fabric: 1.5m quilting cotton, Raindrops by Umbrella Prints, purchased from GJ's Discount Fabrics
Notions: 30cm invisible zipper, 60cm ric rac, 50cm 8mm elastic
Lovely easy pattern to make. I particularly like the ric rac edging on the neckline. I was a little concerned that it might prove to be itchy, but the Tyger declares that it's just fine. I pressed it quite severely with my iron on the hightest steam setting to make it sit up nice and straight - it hasn't drooped yet, so that's a good sign.
