Hello world – introducing myself with Butterick B5781 – the cute skater type dress.

I hope that this blog will allow me to share my sewing projects with other members of the world wide sewing community…at least, those who are interested. I love looking at other peoples work, and I would love to hear back from other fashion sewers out there. I have never started a blog before….much like the sewing, I am learning as I go along…will post a picture of my latest sewing project shortly. It’s Butterick B5781. Now, I confess, one of the reasons I was drawn to this pattern was due to the fact it was on 50% sale, but I liked the princess seams on the bodice, the pleating detail on the skirt, and the pockets. I will post some pictures of the finished garment later…..

I love to shop, but I also love to sew my own clothes, and am currently on a mission to improve my (fairly basic) dressmaking skills. I confess to going into shops and being outraged at the prices of some (not very well made) garments (is it an age thing?) and think "huh, I could make some thing at least as good as that for less" (is it something to do with coming from the Indian subcontinent?) So this blog details my sewing endeavours, both good and bad....I love to nosey through other people's sewing projects....now everyone can get to see mine.
