Done and Dusted

The wedding dress that is. Bustle points sorted [after destroying rather a lot of safety pins], photos taken, tulle trimmed some more.  Everyone seemed happy, so I am too. This will be fully blogged after the wedding at the end of July, but just to show how much hand sewing went into applying the lace … Continue reading Done and Dusted


Okeri-Jokery?  Oh I give up.  The Oki Style ‘Joker’ shirt. WOW.  Just WOW.  This is one cooooool pattern, so of course, the missus pounced on it right away.  I already had the lovely heavy weight stretch cotton poplin, with white self-stripe that I’d used for my Style Arc ‘Juliet’ shirt #2, and the wife had … Continue reading Oki-Jokey…

It’s looking rather good so far, and I just need to sponge out a few marks from the underlining … Continue reading On the Tulle Road
