Too Much On!

Things have been, as always, busy to say the least.  I’m working all weekend on stuff that has fallen behind but when I have a breather, I’ll be able to write up about the things that have been going on in chez KristenMakes!  They are to include:

    • a lovely visit from my mum!
    • a finished jumper!
    • the Royal Highland Show!
    • …and other bits & bobs


Until then, I’ll share a teaser of my progress on the Lonsdale dress from the Summer Spark Sew-along.

What was this:


has progressed to this:


I’m pretty chuffed with the results so far.  My experimentation in a stripey Lonsdale (thanks to careful pattern piece placement and cutting which took over the entire kitchen floor) is coming along exactly as planned!

Can’t wait to finish and share everything else!

    Oooh, your Lonsdale looks gorgeous! Can’t wait to see it finished! I was naughty and started a wearable muslin for my dress – I was planning on finishing my jacket first but stumbled on inserting the lining!

    Oooh it looks lovely!

    Nice! You’ve gotten further than I have. But that’s ok. I made the lining more complicated, so that slowed me down a bit. Hopefully this week I’ll have time to finish!
