3 more sleeps until the Ashby Primary School Market Day. 1 more sleep until Andrew comes home from a 10 day work trip to the USA and UK. Yay, I'm a little tired of solo parenting right now!
I think this is the last item I will be making for the market. Another tablecloth dress in size 5 this time. It was a gorgeous cream linen tablecloth with subtle lemon and mint green embroidery, begging to be made into a dress. I've used a reproduction cotton print in vintage yellow with little flowers on it for the back and sleeves. This is one way to make bigger sized tablecloth dresses- tablecloths aren't always big enough for bigger dresses unfortunately. I meant to cut this one out as a size 6, but had started cutting when I realised I was cutting a size 5. Oh well.
After I said I don't find nice tablecloths very often, of course I find a few. Maybe people are having a bit of a spring clean and declutter.
