Once upon a time the lovely Louise of Hope and Elvis sent an email out to say she would be running a crafty day with the two most lovely crafty blogging people ever; much giddiness occured in this household and many others over the country as we awaited the day when we were able to book online. At 7:30 precisly on a dull Monday morning that time arrived and we all logged on to our computers to try to book one of the 30 available places. At this time, my hubby's pc decided to crash on me, so with a very sad face I tweeted Rachelle to tell her that I would not be one of the lucky few to see her that day. Imagine my surprise later that day when I had a confirmation email from Louise to say that I was going! The email had sent before the pc crashed! (Little known to me but I was actually the 32nd person to email at the same point in time so Louise, most wisely, decided that she had to have 16 people on each session instead of 15). The crafty gods were most definitely shining upon me that day!
Now this email should have sent me into much delight, however now it opened a can of worms - what fabric did I have that I could take to turn into a perfect pinny, would they like me and most importantly of all, what on earth do you wear when faced with such beautiful granny frocks as always adorned by Tif and Rachelle.
I decided to make a dress, as you do, and set about snipping and sewing wildly in the hope to have something to wear on that glorious day. I must point out here that I have no dressmaking skills whatsoever and have never made a dress in my life. Was that to stop me? No siree it was not! The first attempt looked okay but didn't fit when I tried it on!
so with a bit of snipping down the middle and some additional fabric and a handy dandy placed doiley it worked, more or less.
