I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of this pattern, which I won on ebay, and which I am hoping I can make with the 2 metres of rosebud fabric from the fifties fair. Looks do-able (I'm talking the slim skirt version), or am I being optimistic? Will I run short of fabric or will it be the usual story of the frock being about 25cm too long, so I will not need the 2 5/8 yards the pattern will probably say I should have? Oh the suspense!

Off topic, but I have been sewing near here...

I'm all exciting about the first actual bit of the renovations being finished (the sewing studio is a ways off still...) and particularly excited about having a fridge again after months without one. Hurrah!
Blue is before, white is after, which I hope is obvious, but maybe not!

I still have to get the shelvedge in - nowhere to put food IN the kitchen at the mo, so it is all on the loungeroom shelves.

When all the canisters and mixmasters and stuff gets in it will look less stark too.
