The 1st Dress

Hi welcome to the first Patchwork Pin-Up blog post.

That gorgeous pic above is my very first bit of ‘proper’ patchwork. In the past I have dabbled with sewing, making clothes and costumes, even some soft furnishings. This patchwork is for a dress, a pin-up dress. Some of my friends and family have seen the dress. Cue adoration and admiration: Oh, Ah, how wonderful you are! – No really I made it. – Yes, it’s proper patchwork, not printed. – Oh you’re so clever! (oh, please, continue…)

So, after it’s had its first bath and time in the sun. (sun! in winter! – Yes! this IS Perth) I will have a mini photo shoot to showcase design No. 1.
