At Dawn We Dress Handmade...

Indeed I did.
Today I wore my red white and blue mark 1, (A Lisette pattern), and my Etta cardigan for little errands in The Laines, post office etc.
This definitely needed an FBA and the waist is a little tight for my liking.
I did my photos on photobooth as I was waiting for Piemaker to be my resident photographer. He's not yet in from work and its date night so were going straight out for dinner and then to see Pirates of the Caribbean 4! ( I think its the 4th right?)
Well anyways. I did errands today and spent the rest of the day sewing.
I got the collar and button placket onto my shirtdress and did a few odd sewing jobs, cutting some interfacing for my duck egg peplum shirt I had to use my pattern weights! I also started putting together my Beignet!

You didn't think I could walk past two fabric shops and not buy anything did you? I got some buttons for my duck egg blouse. Some Mustard Kona cotton (I really like the weight of this I was thinking it was going to be too thin!) some unknown floral fabric, like a very lightweight cotton linen texture and some Michael Miller Peony fabric. It was an expensive treat but I had some birthday money. (9.99 pm) I had also seen it online but it was too breathtaking in person to leave. One of these florals will be a Lisette tunic dress I think!
