Half Way Through March

We are half way through march and I have had quite a productive Sunday.

My red dress with the white flowers has every thing done but the hand stitching and button, I’ll admit that I cheated a bit, I did the hem on my sewing machine, I started off hand stitching but the fabric is so heavy and so wide that I decided against it.

Pinstripe Skirt, I finished unpicking the zip, put the zip back in attached the lining and waistband. I am now waiting for the inch grosgrain Ribbon to complete the waistband.

I have also practically finished my second version of New York Gold 444 that just need the buttons and finishing off the hand stitching.
