Robe 'n' Roll

So, when you come home from a hard day's slog at the coalmine, you face the eternal question: do I get straight on to making that cheese 'n' bacon toasted sandwich, or do I sew that dressing gown I cut out eons ago while staying at mum's house?

Tonight's answer: make the robe, then grill the bacon, then melt the cheese, then enjoy.

Pattern: New Look 6443 - I went looking for the simplest dressing gown pattern I could find, and New Look were 1/2 price at Spottie so there you go. And so easy too!

Stay tuned...

The blue and white spots I bought at Spotlight today are going to be frankensteined as per your suggestion moggy, using the wrap blouse from the top pattern, and the A line skirt from necky. (I got home from work early, and I've already started!)
The blue is darker than it appears in this photo, damn sunshine!

two weeks to go!

What are we going to wear? A reminder of last year's frocks. How glam are we, with our shoes in bin bags?

Out out damn spot!

I do love spots. They make me happy, and doing a quick wardrobe audit apparently they are second only to leopard in the pattern stakes (followed by skulls). Anyway, here is the Anne Adams mail order pattern and matching bolero. It's reversible you know.
