Hi there, sewing boys and girls, hope you’re enjoying yourselves wherever you are! I am certainly having a good time writing this post on a train to Leeds, on my way to a fantastic sewing for charity event that’s happening tomorrow and Tuesday. Read more on Making for Charity’s Facebook page if you’re curious and if you’re local, come and say hello!!

In the meantime, please allow me to entertain you with a new completed sewing project, and ooh boy, there haven’t been that many of those lately…  I did get to do a bit more sewing in April, so a few new things for me to wear for Me Made May, which I will photograph and blog about shortly (here’s hoping!).

A perfect spot – Raglan Tunic Dress

Post 77

Hello sewosphere, guess who is back? Back from holidays, that is, and with a horrendous case of the blues… Lisbon was lovely, with blue skies and sangria in the sun, and coming back into the middle of Storm Katie did nothing to ease me back into everyday life…

In any case, on the sewing front, I can report some great bargain fabric purchases in Lisbon, and slowly, very slowly getting my sewjo back. I have sewn nothing in March, which is actually a bit worrying for me. In part, it was due to a lot of travelling for work and our holidays in Portugal, but I also acquired two UFOs, which is very unusual for me. I really need a quick and dirty project to get me out of the slump…

But in the meantime, I do have something to show you, a dress I absolutely love and have already worn a dozen times, but somehow didn’t get a chance to photograph yet. It was like a curse, every time I wanted to do it, something came up: bad weather, hangovers and just not being home in the daylight. I even took it with me to Portugal, but it rained on the day I had planned for pics. GRRR! So I just took some boring pics in my living room today, taking advantage of a break in the clouds and rain for some reasonable daylight.

So here goes, my perfect spotted raglan tunic dress…
