A pinafore for Miss Milla, made from Liberty babycord that I bought at Shaukat when I was pregnant with her. And using a Butterick pattern that my mum has had with her sewing things for as long as I can remember... aren't the envelope illustrations adorable? I had thought it was from when my sister and I were little, but on closer inspection the pattern looks more 1970s than 1980s (or maybe even older?), so maybe it was a hand-me-down, or one Mum used to make dresses for someone else's children before we were born.
The Liberty cord was, as always, a dream to sew with, and I think the finished dress looks sweet. I'm imagining it with a long-sleeved white picot edge t-shirt underneath and grey tights. But my proudest bit is the invisible zip... I have been avoiding these for SO long ("Learn to do invisible zippers" was on both my 2010 and 2011 Creative To-Do lists, but I've been wanting to learn to do them for much longer than that, since conventional zippers always result in much angst and unpicking) and with some help from Mel and the proper Janome invisible zipper foot I finally was brave enough to try it... and it was really easy. Quite anti-climatic after all the build up, but I'm very happy to have a new skill in my sewing repetoire.
