I hope that you are enjoying your Summer!
I have been having a great time in London, but not with my sewing machine unfortunately.
After battling with Butterick 5949, I have given up and decided to call it a day with this dress :-(
Although there isn't anything particularly hard about this dress I have had to do lots of alterations from the beginning and everything just didn't really work out. As I have come so far I will put it in my sewing basket and maybe come back to it in a couple of weeks after a break.
Hopefully I will have a finished garment for August. No doubt it will be something easy and maybe a TNT pattern to get my spirits up after spending so much time on the dress above.
