Please Indulge Me...

Hello again :) Even though I've been sewing almost every spare minute, I've still got nothing I'm allowed to show here yet. I'm right about at the stage where it feels like this is all I've ever sewn and all I ever will sew.

It's all going fairly smoothly so far (I'm happy and, more importantly, the bride's happy), but do you mind if I test the friendship for a moment with a brief but heartfelt whinge?? Here goes:


I really, really hate chiffon.



Thank you. I feel better now.

  1. Oh dear, I feel for you. But I must say that chiffon garments are gorgeous to wear, to touch and to look at, so all the suffering now will be worth it in the end. Chin up - you can't be too far away from completion!

  2. When I feel like screaming I take empties to the bottle bank - for optimum benefits it pays to find an empty bank - something strangely therapeutic about the sound of breaking glass (in an entirely safe and environmentally sound setting of course!). Best of luck, hope the finishing line is in sight :)

  3. I've so been there and have felt your pain! It really will be worth it once you get to the end.

    1. Thanks, Claire! I've been keeping your gorgeous chiffon dress in mind as "finish line inspiration", believe me :)
