Last weekend Meg and I had a virtual "sew-a-long" - I say virtual as Meg lives in Philadelphia and I live in Wellington, obviously Saturday afternoon arrives in New Zealand a lot earlier than it does in the USA so lets just say I got to the party a lot earlier than Meg did!
Recently I've been reading a lot of stuff about "green" sewing and re-purposing fabrics, so when I recently found a duvet cover at an op shop that I liked, I thought I would try and make it into something.
I have the feeling that Duvet may be a New Zealand English word? So to my Australian friends its a "Doona Dress" and for my American friends its a "Comforter Dress" and for those in the UK and further afield - I'm not sure what you may call it - I'm sorry. No wonder English is such a difficult language to learn!
Also, the dress is made of quite thick fabric seen as it used to be a duvet cover. Which normally wouldn't be so bad seen as it's autumn, but on the day I wore it to work this week the air conditioner was broken and it was 25 degrees in our building which was just too hot. All the guys were taking off their ties and rolling up their sleeves - and I was boiling in this frock!
I've been having a pretty super Easter so far - even though its pretty quiet. Lots of walking, hanging out with Rich and crafting. Fun times. Much of the crafting is related to craft swaps so I can't share pictures yet - but I am working on a frock which is made from some pretty awesome (vintage) fabric that my mum sent me. Hopefully I can share that with you all sometime soon. Have a super Easter Sunday xoxox
