I did take a few pics of my new dress/jacket, but felt the look needed a bit of updating to reflect my current lifestyle. I had gone shopping at Terrigal with my 81yr. old Mum on Wednesday. We walking back to the car and were struck by a big black cafe umbrella, and ended up on the footpath. I remember seeing Mum “diving” through the air and thinking that I had to save her before I found myself on the pavement also. Mum has a bruised left arm where the umbrella struck her and bruised right ribs where she landed. I have a badly sprained ankle and two broken bones in my right foot. Maybe I will have more time for sewing because I can’t walk , drive and or do house work!
I was motivated by a Country Road dress which was similar in style to Louise Cuttings “The Directors Cut” shirt. I cut a medium and just made it longer to a dress length. The pattern was easy to sew as Louise Cutting has the best directions ever and there is always something new to learn.
I have the 2x View A cut out and ready to sew. Think they may be next on the list.
