I have been a busy bee

I know I haven't posted in aaaaages! This doesn't mean I haven't been busy. I have been sewing my wee heart out.

I thought I might share some of my newer creations with anyone that may like to see! 

I am also working hard on improving my techniques and trying new things.  I have been avidly watching The Great British Sewing Bee again and I don't know what I will do now that it is finished for another year. 

Anyway... Here are some pics of one of my newer outfits. I mainly wear it to my dance events and parties. 

I call this one my "Banana Man Hawaiian Wham dress"... As the print is Hawaiian inspired but reminds me of banana man and wham bars (yum!). It is based on a simple freebie shift dress pattern I had. I added a double peplum to the sides, changed the neckline to a sweetheart, made and inserted my own contrasting bias bound piping and added capped sleeves... And I obviously had to do a major full bust adjustment :-/ as usual!  It looks killer with yellow heels (but I also have my dancing heels that are turquoise and pink leather). 

Sorry about this pic above... It was take on my phone, in the dark and prior to it being dressed and hemmed! 

Thanks to anyone who bothered to read my blog today!
