Grade 8 graduation today…neighbour came by in a panic, her daughters dress had major fail, the zipper broke an hour before graduation. So I sewed her daughter in the dress, sewed up the tops of the boning (which kept popping out) and sent her away with all of my safety pins as plan B. Crisis resolved!

The house in the video? SOLD. A hundred and fifty thousand dollars over asking. Yes folks you read that sentence correctly. Woo Hoo!!!

I have cut out a Burda skirt and have begun sewing it:

It’s in black linen. I may outline the seams in a contrast thread by hand – I saw that on another skirt and it was a nice touch, especially since you can’t really see the seaming in black. That’s all for now!
