Summer Sewing!

My daughter Elaine has been on a real sewing spree!  She said she'd do a guest post here, but is now rushing out on some social whirl and so has left me with some photos to share of her summer creations.

The first item is a dress that she made from fabric I had stashed, and mighty fine it looks too I think!

Edit to add picture of pattern used by Elaine 

She also bought some floaty material on our recent excursion to the fabric shop in Carrickfergus and made this neat little top (copying the outline pattern of one of her existing tops).  She made the skirt to go with it.

Finally her last item this week was this flowery top.  She and her friends went back to the shop in Carrickfergus last week, and this material and the skirt material came from this second foray.

And her friend Joanna, who had never used a sewing machine before, got very inspired to create a bag for herself out of some rather vibrant fluffy fleece material!

This fully lined bag was the end result!  Way to go Joanna!
