Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s a UFO!!

“Oh… hey, remember this dress?”

Little Green UFO

“Yeah! Wasn’t that the dress you finished month’s ago Amy?

“Kind of. It was the one I rushed through like a demon just to get done only to see it start fraying before I’d even hemmed it.”


“Yeah but all is well now…. cos I unpicked it all and used Sergei the serger to redo all the seams and stop the fraying.”

“Woooohoooo! Bitchin.”

“You knows it.”*

*Disclaimer…. this is only how I talk to myself in my head. Not in the office. Well not often.

Ta Daaaaaaaa!!!! (*smug*)

I LOVE this dress. Thank goodness I repaired it and didn’t cast it forever into the scrap pile.

One teeny downside is the fact it blew up round my ears when a big gust of wind struck up and I flashed an older male colleague who was walking behind me up the hill to work.

Ahem. I gotta ask…

Is it worse to flash your rear or your front?

I’m thinking my rear as at least I didn’t see his face as I flashed him. Basically I didn’t dare turn around hehehe.

Oh well it has a lovely swishy skirt and is such a bright colour. Still a thumbs up from me!

Other things to blog / brag about is how pleased I am that I figured out sewing zip-up pouches.  Please don’t roll your eyes and say “they’re sooo easy”. I was really struggling for a while.

I used Sew Kate Sew’s fab post. She spells it out so simply! I made myself a new make up bag.

Dotty goodness
Everything neatly fits inside

Totally recommend you try this too! I’m going to make plenty more.

  1. Ooooh, I’m gonna make me some zip pouches too! Make-up, pens, cake decorating bits and bobs… I foresee many uses! Loving the polka dots btw. And the dress of course, but I already told you that with my mouth.
